Sunday Streets, Mission Edition

June 7, 2009

Great foot / bicycle / stroller traffic today for Sunday Streets San Francisco, Mission Edition.

Looking north on Valencia from 24th:

Looking east on 24th and Mission:

And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet and surprise ’em with the victory cry:

dancers and feathers

Is this new, or am I oblivious?

Anyway, a great event, looked like stores were getting solid traffic. Looking forward to July 19th for the next Mission edition.  My only complaint?  Ended too early — 4pm instead of 2pm would be perfect.

More pictures over at Mission Local and Beer & Nosh.

It’s the fifth horseman of the apocalypse! I love the skull on the tire. Click on the big picture above to get more awesome detail.)

    4pm would be much better. Also, that guy on the bike that was ghetto blasting MIA’s Paper Planes could not be there. Dude was a “good conversation”-blocker

    yeah, 4 or 5pm would be better and the guy with the loud music on the three wheel bike wearing a hat is not invited next time

    Yeah, stereo tricycle guy was pretty disrespectful — let’s blast out the eardrums of small children!

    Jesse, your pictures make my mouth water and bring tears to my eyes — tragically I missed Pal’s sandwiches by about 2 minutes.

    that car is pretty new – it’s only been there for a week or two.

    They change the art there pretty often.

    Hey subby, what’s the cross street? (My geotagging got hosed on that particular shot, claims it was 100 miles off the coast of baja california…)

    johnny0 – cross street is Bryant. That’s the side of the Galeria de la Raza building.

    Hi folks –

    I’m the guy with the soundsystem on the tricycle. I came across your blog last night & have been thinking about it since.

    Then, just now, I just got a very nice note from one of the Sunday Streets organizers saying basically how much they love Trikeasaurus and how much it has added to all the Sunday Streets, but that with the larger crowds and more packed in nature of Sunday Streets Mission, asking if I could turn it down a bit at the next one. They noted that this is the first time they have gotten anything other than “we loved loved loved the guy with the music bike” type messages.

    I will, of course, happily comply.

    Just so you know, I actually do this to make a lot of people happy & try really hard to be thoughtful and respectful about it (I turn down the music when stopped, try not to stop in one place long, try to play stuff that a lot of people like) and to be honest, judging by the honestly vast amount of positive response – usually I succeed in a big way. Sounds like I mostly did this time, but it could be better if it were a little dialed back.

    Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I heard you.

    Thanks ‘Deep — I’ve seen you before, and love the trike and the music. Appreciate you thinking about the volume.

    Look forward to seeing you next month.

    Hi All, Cheryl from Sunday Streets here – Deep is wonderful – he was an early supporter and has been at every Sunday Streets so far. We’re so sorry that the volume was too loud for some – I know he only wants to bring happiness and music.

    Sunday Streets is an evolving process and the Mission route was definitely a different beast then the other routes. Deep’s volume had not been a problem before and as he said – he’s heard you. When you see him on July 19th give him a wave and dance along for a while. I look forward to seeing Deep and you all out in the streets – come out and play. And volunteer. And e-mail your supervisor and the Mayor and tell them if you want to see more Sunday Streets – more neighborhoods, more hours, more fun.

    Thank you all so much for sharing your streets.
