The Reemergence of the Islands of SF
Being a grumpy old man, I am not on the Face-book, but it seems that my “Islands of San Francisco” neighborhood map is being “liked” by the kids. Flattering to watch it circulate!
Unfortunately, it was an old version, and someone took the time to crop the image and remove the link. (WTF?) Fortunately it crossed back over to Twitter and my agents pointed the wayward to the source (thanks everyone!)
Rather than shaking my fist at the sky at croppage, I will take this as an opportunity to remind you how to obtain a lovely physical copy of this map for a very affordable $20 over on Zazzle.
Look at the detail! And no streets to argue over! I mean, I’d easily lay down some platinum coins for this.
It can be seen on the walls of many a discerning San Franciscan.
For full effect, I recommend getting a version that’s at least two-thirds of your height.
It’s not cheap, but neither is matting and framing. And you also get the satisfaction of imagining that Zazzle accidentally sent you a pizza.
Just keep your eye open for Zazzle discount codes.
I’ve had a couple of requests to reproduce it — if you go to the SFAR building on the corner of Grove & Franklin, you can see a rather giant version in their entryway.
If anyone wants to put this on the side of a building or trace it out in the desert, I’m game — ping me on Twitter!
