San Francisco Chronicle Article about One Rincon Residents Moving Into Their New Home

There was a nice article about the urban pioneers who moved into One Rincon Hill over the past month. If you do not receive the print edition of the paper (something I highly recommend), you can read the article online.

Don’t bother looking at the Comments to the article unless you want to read the stereotypes people have concocted – and they’re mostly silly and suggest envy more than anything.

  1. I didn’t find the comments silly. I thought many of them were vicious. Is there anything we can do to change people’s impressions of us and generate some good will? Simply responding to them by saying, “No, we’re not here to End Civilization As We Know It” probably isn’t going to work. πŸ™‚

  2. Personally, I’m hoping that our Rincon Hill Neighborhood Association develops a critical mass so that as a group, some of us can volunteer
    a morning or afternoon at the San Francisco Food Bank, Glide Church’s Kitchen, or maybe commit to raising funds for AIDS Walk or one of the other charity events that involve employer and community groups as teams. Such events would give us an opportunity to work together, to get to know each other, and to give back to this great city. We’ll see … the only folks who like changes are wet babies, as the saying goes, so we’ll read our fair share of brutal opinions about our neighborhood for some time … but it won’t matter if we’re too busy working together to develop a fantastic residential neighborhood. I suggest we focus on small things we can change – start by saying hi to folks you pass on the street in Rincon Hill. πŸ™‚
