Shotwell Stroll

You always hear people not wanting to live on or walk on or look for parking on Shotwell because the name makes them think of getting shot. Yesterday, I walked the entire length of Shotwell on my way home. Turns out, it’s a nice, quiet, neighborhood street with wide sidewalks, lots of trees and gardens, cute old houses, and a constant flow of pedestrians and cyclists.

Moreover, on this particular day, one side of the Mission was sunny and the other was blanketed by a storm cloud black as night. This resulted in some choice photo opportunities (see photo).

    A good reason people don’t like walking down Shotwell is that the odds of stepping in human feces are pretty high between 18th and 20th.

    that’s a more reasonable reason i guess, MJ. but it’s still a nice street.
