Slice of Blight
The yellow sections indicate neighborhoods. Note that the Mission is nearly 100% blight! Hooray, let’s built a giant highway through the middle!
(Interesting Noe and North Beach also got the blight map, especially since all three neighborhoods really haven’t changed all that much in the past 60 years.)
Of course, being blight-free was no guarantee of not getting Tom Petty’d. Here we see a rather flabbergasting interchange planned for the Sunset at Irving and 6th Ave:
