First, Jesse wrote in to ask for a little help from the Mission Mission community:
Do I live in the Mission?
I vote yes – many others vote no.
I live off 24th street, in between Portrero and the 101. I claim
this makes me live in the mission, since I NEVER head up the hill for
anything. Instead, when going out, I nearly always trek down 24th
street into the Mission for fun and activities. However, many others
are adamant that Portrero is the dividing line and I in fact live on
Portrero hill. Nevermind that it’s flat here.
So help me MissionMission – do i live in the Mission? Or do I have
to invent some strange nether region name for my area? Portrero
Flats? Missiontrero? Port-o-Mission?
PS – helpful map included, because that’s how we roll in the SFGH
Then, we were over at Burrito Justice and spotted this artful bit of cartography that highlights my favorite Mission microhood, La Lengua:
