Stop Them!

San Francisco is celebrating Obama’s reelection with a construction boom.  All those empty corner lots up and down Market are growing condo and apartment complexes like weeds, and throughout the Mission i see cranes twirling and buildings rising.  Hell, even on Noe Street between 17th and 18th Street there are two new buildings, one completely new and its neighbor, which had stood gutted by fire for several years, totally reworked into a pair of modern condos over a double garage.  Lean, clean lines, with a tangy touch of red detail around the sunken doorways.  A handsome building.

And then they screwed in a pair of neo-early-American light fixtures!   Aaagrhhhh!

Stop them before they decorate again.
