A row of Italianates watch over Capp Street. Some are still sleepy, others are wide awake and looking forward to the prospect of a hot day. By Eugeniya Kirovskaya

Good morning Capp Street! It’s 6:47 a.m., 56° and headed to 84°. Details for the next ten days are here. The air is crisp with a promise of a day warm enough to wear sundresses outside of the Mission. I walked for three blocks on Capp Street, between 23rd and 25th, and here is what I found.

If you want to participate in documenting your block before the Mission Wakes Up, send us an email at info@missionlocal.com. We would love to see how you experience the neighborhood in the early morning. You can see all essays here.

  1. I commend you and ML for recently focussing more on day-to-day life in the Mission, and less political posturing. There was a period a few months ago when ML appeared not to be able to resist casting for eyeballs with ideological bait like tech shuttles and ellis evictions.

    Other publications whose focus is overtly political do a better job of that, whereas ML now seems to be utilizing more of its natural advantage of being able to go out and about in the community, talking about sights, events, people, businesses etc.

    Inevitably the result is a less busy comments section but, given your commenting guidelines, I’d presume that you don’t see ML as a vehicle for long and deep debates anyway.

    So, well done, and please keep things light and breezy here. There’s plenty of good things happening locally without wallowing in the mindsel of those who always seem critical and negative.

    1. So now I can’t even thank ML for their new style of coverage without you getting all snide about it? Are you missing the endless tales of envy?
