Home Again

This sight always makes me feel pretty good. Nicely captured by juicyrai. Definitely do click to enlarge.

Update: Haha. Jake says

LOL at first comment on Flickr page: “Just wish they could dump the chain link fence for something a bit more regal. Chain link fencing isn’t very welcoming.”

For serious, BART! Who you gotta blow to maybe get some western red cedar fencing up in this bitch? I CANNOT COME HOME TO THIS CHAINLINK BULLSHIT OKAY

    when i moved to SF i always got a warm feeling going in & out of the 16th street station. the subway aspect was a little piece of home…

    bart trains were carpeted, and the little ‘beep beep’ when they pull into the station….kinda quaint & homey. thoth would play the violin and dance…

    and the brontosauruses on mission street were kinda cool too.

    Dude, what fucker displaced the brontosauruses?

    well, i WANT to say “taxidermy mice killed them”, but i’m over that shit now.

    let’s say they kinda died out over time.

    still a few of us dinosaurs left though…

    I want guerilla artists to replace that shit asap.

    Girafa, Jesse Hazelip, Laura Mappin, have at it.

    An armed Girafanocerous would be EPIC. Oh, man, can you imagine?

    why not go out the other exit which has no chain link fence? boom! problem solved.

    Then you have the wrought-iron hospitality of the little garden in the back of Carlo’s Club — are commuters indeed welcome?

    (The Mapjack links often break in Safari for some reason — try Firefox, or this blurrier, more desolate looking Google Maps link winter view. )

  9. [...] I still want my infill BART station at 30th though  — La Lengua’s easily worth half a billion of stimulus funds!  PDFs on BART’s planning website (part B has all the construction porn). Bored tunnel, not cut-and-cover (like the rest of Mission was done), estimated 3.5 years of construction time, with just 11 months of traffic distruption, and a huge hole in the Safeway parking lot and Valencia/29th to get the dirt out and cement in. All for beautiful entrances at 29th and 30th, and a nice new building for El Patio! It could be our Carlo’s, where commuters are welcome… [...]
