These are some stories that we collected from folks at Mission Sunday Streets in April.
Visit us again when we set up for Sunday Streets in July. Stay tuned for more information!
• “Bi-Rite was where you could buy booze, cigarettes, milk, and play Ms. Pac-Man. You got “streetcred” by playing good at Ms Pac-Man .”
From Chris a S.F. resident who’s Grandma lived in the neighborhood.
• “When we got trash cans on Valencia Street it made a huge difference.”
From a resident who has lived in the neighborhood since 1981.
• “I once lost a camera without realizing it here on Valencia Street…later that day, a small group of folks approached and said “There they are!”. I turned around bewildered and they presented me with the camera that I didn’t even know was missing. They found it and looked through the photos…they saw a sliver of a rainbow sweater…(and) they were able to match it to the photos on the camera.”
From Isaac who typed up his story on one of our vintage typewriters.
