It is 8:30 p.m.. but these photos were taken at earlier.  It is now  63˚ and expected to rise to a 76˚. Details for the next ten days are here.

Today’s block:  Adair to 16th, Capp to South Van Ness.

I have not been out for a good morning in awhile and looked forward to the experience, it always feels when I’m going afar from home near 24th Street, that I’m on expedition. Although I’ve walked the Mission multiple times, did I know that Adair ends and begins on one small block? No. The block, also has some gems – a romantic despair in the long abandoned gas station on the corner of 16th and South Van Ness, the ever lively Chile Lindo’s and, of course, the iconic Redstone building, where the real riches are inside. And, across the street on Adair at 65 Capp stands the former site of one of the early residency programs, The Capp Street Project. 

With the light good early on, so much the better to sign on to document your block. Don’t wait! Let us know what day and block you would like at info@missionlocal.com.

You can see a map of all of the blocks here. The blocks in grey are being saved for others who have signed up. Let us save a block for you as well.

The abandoned chair is iconic in these early morning photo shoots. The trash can I suppose adds promise?  Photo by Lydia Chávez
