Big Day in New and Old Media

January 20, 2011

The kind and generous editors at Curbed SF asked if I would write about La Lengua in their People’s Guide. Humbled, I wrote forth, and Behold! Everthing you wanted to know about La Lengua (but were afraid to ask). Viva La Lengua Libre!

Also, some website called “SFGate” wrote an article titled “Who names your SF ‘hood“.  Well, we all know the answer to that — not realtors. But they do give a nice shout out to my Islands of SF map (though fail to acknowledge the supremacy of La Lengua. Oh, old media, when will you learn…)

    Like I anonymously commented on Curbed (sorry, it’s just too hard to spend more that 45 seconds figuring out how to register), you’re totally legit now.

    I appreciate and share your enthusiasm for our hood, but I don’t think you represent all of us in calling it La Lengua and trying to get everyone else to do the same. What other neighborhoods are named after body parts? The grotesque connotation doesn’t do [burrito] justice to our great community. You clearly have a strong voice, but I wish you’d advocate for something that better encapsulates the spirit of the place and shows it to be the unique and desirable spot we all know it is.
