Ah, for the good old days, when you could buy a piece of Bay Area property for $1,000.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of the web text and the current audio falsely states that SF BARF is mostly funded by "ordinary renters." In fact, over $86,000 of the group's funds were contributed by real estate and corporate groups. They also described the site as being "less than a mile" from the Bayshore Caltrain stop. In fact, the border of the site reaches all the way to the station. Lastly, we did not mention that the Baylands Site includes land that is not landfill. 

 

A few months ago, when it became clear that the small town of Brisbane was looking to build up a huge development that would not include any new housing at all, San Francisco Supervisor Jane Kim floated the idea of basically annexing part of the town into her city, so that San Francisco could make sure housing got built.

San Francisco is an environmentally conscious city, so it would make sense that many who live in and around it struggle with issues like how to get around. 

Avi Hoen sure is. He’s a high school student at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts in San Francisco. He’s about to turn 16 and has a hand-me-down car, but he isn’t sure he needs it.
