Curbed SF

In San Francisco, it all comes back to our neighborhoods: where we live, where we work, where we eat, and where we play. First launched in 2006, Curbed has been at the center of the virtual city, covering real estate sales, rental prices, and news-making deals. We also track the newest developments in architecture and design while keeping up with the hottest restaurants, via our sister site Eater SF, and the latest neighborhood gossip—it's all on Curbed, because this is where you live. Curbed SF is the third of the Curbed sites, which also include Curbed NY and Curbed LA, and part of the Curbed Network, a collection of neighborhood blogs. Our other sites are the restaurant blog Eater, the retail and fashion blog Racked and, during the summer season, The Beach, which covers the Hamptons.

SFBG Politics Blog

42nd Street Moon

Blogger and 42 St. Moon Founder, Greg MacKellan, and BlogMaster Elisa Camahort of Worker Bees hope to give you a backstage glimpse at the theatre and all of its activities, from putting on our staged concerts of "Lost" musicals, to our outreach programs.

All City

All City is all about photography – specifically San Francisco urban photography – with an occasional photo from other parts of the earth (and someday beyond!). But what truly binds us together is San Francisco proper and its many personalities, from tourist kitsch to ocean beaches, soaring skylines to urban decay. We hope that you will join us — and our friends — as we travel around the city and shed light on its many corners.

All Shook Down

SF Weekly's art, music and culture blog.

Forage Oakland

Forage Oakland is a project that- at its core- works to address how we eat everyday, and how everyone can benefit from viewing their neighborhood as a veritable edible map, considering what is cultivated in any given neighborhood and why, and what histories influence those choices. The gleaning of unharvested fruits; the meeting of new neighbors; the joy of the season's first hachiya persimmon (straight from your neighbor's backyard, no less); the gathering and redistribution of fruits that would otherwise be wasted- can be powerful and can work to create a new paradigm around how we presently think about food in our collective consciousness. Imagine gathering several friends for morning, midday, evening or weekend foraged city bicycle rides through your neighborhood.

Casa Decrepit

One of the most common sorts of questions we get about this house is its history. The house was built in 1876 by a man named Robert M. Holt, and is listed in the City of Alameda historical society as the Robert M. Holt House even though he doesn't live here any more. The style is Italianate, which is said like "ital-yan-ate" rather than the "ital-ee-ahn-tay" we hear a lot of people say. 1876 is the very very tail end of the Italianate period in Victorian houses, which was centered in the 1850's, so this house was very conservative in style when it was built. It was originally, like most Italianate houses, painted entirely white to look like stonework. Robert M. Holt was an architect/builder (they were the same thing back then) and built several other houses on the island, including a bunch of identical Victorians further down the island. At the time he built this house he owned the entire block and presumably several others that he developed.
