I've turned the corner onto Elizabeth Street. Hoops, Hope.

It is 7:46 a.m, 57° and headed to 70°. Details for the next ten days are here.

Today I watched the  early morning on the block bounded by  24th and Elizabeth Streets, and San Jose and Guerrero.  My report: 100 percent of the dwellings have yet to experience any movement. I saw one lone soul walking south on Guerrero and very briefly on 24th another woman was out to walk her dog.

It was less today the architectural details that told a block’s story and more the small objects or elements that owners or renters have added.  Hoops, flowers, signs.

Help document a block in the Mission! All you have to do is get up by 6:30 a.m. (or so) walk a block and take photos of what catches your eye. Then you e-mail or dropbox them to us and we take care of the rest.  You’ll get to claim a block on this map – it doesn’t have to be your block, just any that interest you.  If you want anonymity, that can be arranged.
