Bernal Heights Sock Exchange

If Bernal Heights were still how it was 20 years ago, we might be seeing a needle exchange here. Or if it were closer to the Financial District we might find a stock exchange. Today, though, this sweet neighborhood – my first when I moved to San Francisco in 1995, and which I still want to call “home” – is host to the Bernal Heights Sock Exchange, and it’s exactly the kind of thing you’d expect here.

Next time you’re looking for that missing sock – or have a few to offer – head on over to the Bernal Bubbles laundromat on the south end of the Cortland Avenue main drag. You just might have some luck!

A hysterical nod to our friends in the north.

 

If there were a Man or Woman from San Francisco, what should they sing about?  Comment below.

According to the folks over at The San Francisco Citizen, this sign was put up (officially – I love San Francisco) where Bush Street ends at Presidio Avenue, just a few weeks after ours truly was sworn in. I wish it had worked sooner.
