NYT Disses La Lengua
Looks like someone broke out the thesaurus:
Bernal Heights Natural Area, a 24-acre knob of red Franciscan chert that rises from a sea of colorful row houses like the prow of a ship, has a 360-degree view of San Francisco in its pastel glory. The city ripples into the distance in all directions…
(Knob of red chert? Pastel glory? Perhaps the author was attacked by a Pantone color wheel as a child. Hey, Pastel Glory would be a great name for a band.)
They properly acknowledge Mission as the western border of Bernal, but they then have the nerve to diss La Lengua:
The 24th Street Mission BART stop is actually closer to Bernal Heights than is the Glen Park station, but the walk from there has little scenic appeal.
