Google Maps Time Travel On 18th and Treat

Yesterday Andrew posted about this cafe space up for grabs on 18th and Treat. Here is the spot on Google Maps:

But check this out: if you click the right arrow on 18th, Google Map’s built-in flux capacitor fires up and you get to see the same spot as it will appear in 2 months, if current economic trends continue!

Use this feature wisely and always remember: if you travel back in time, try not to fuck up your parent’s first date. Otherwise, they will never hook up and you will start to fade from existence. (But wait, then how did you get there in the first place? Damn, time travel is confusing. Discuss.)

    I just love the fact that in a neighborhood full of fabulous, empty warehouse buildings, they had to build one from scratch to do the same thing people in the neighborhood have been doing for decades.

    Mistaken – Those fabulous empty warehouse buildings are actually fabulous, empty “live/work” condolofts, and not suitable for actual “work.” That being said, activspace is dreaming with it’s exorbitant 2007 sq ft prices. It’s fabulous and half-empty, too!

    Most of the people doing “the same thing people in the neighborhood have been doing for decades,” were chased out of SF by the yuppie-RBA-dotcom-induced cost-of-living, and they are now “doing the same thing” in Oakland or Portland.

    It’s okay, though, because this food bubble economy will never pop…until it does.

    Two beers, I live here, know literally almost everyone in the neighborhood who currently and very actively works in the artists spaces throughout the Mission, and your claim is patently false.
