NVV: We Read It So You Don't Have To

The Noe Valley Voice is published ten times a year and has been a neighborhood fixture since 1977. Here are highlights from the latest issue. Links are to stories we've covered.

April 2009
  • Front page: Cesar Chavez redesign; local artists turn art into cancer therapy; profile of Pollen Princesses; Book Week starts April 20th with local authors' readings.
  • Cost of Living in Noe: slow market, slightly cheaper; rents down a little from last year (same as every month recently). The average single family home price in Noe Valley is still $1.5M.
  • Letters: more on the evil priest; unleashed evil dogs; the evil Whole Foods better serve the community.
  • Obits: E'nam Fatima Abu-nie, wife of Shufat Market's owner.
  • Store Trek: Contigo (including a menu from March 22); Brown & Co Noe Valley (local realtor Pete Brannigan).
  • Rumors: No one answered all NV history quiz questions correctly; Streetlight Records' landlords wanted $12k a month; restaurant for sale; Glare re-opened; Noeteca opening "by end of April;" rolling brownout fears once again "threatening" firehouse budgets; Elizabeth Street Brewery wasn't expecting the Inquisition.
  • Traveling Voice: Rio de Janeiro and the Philippines. Whee.
  • Back Page: April Fool's Day headlines (delivered on April 2nd).

I don't know why Noe Valley, SF does this. The Voice isn't that hard to read.

Hey Anonymous, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

I agree with the above author. The Noe Valley Voice is an excellent paper and not sure if it needs to be regurgitated in this type of forum. Especially with the type of slant you add to it.

If you need additional content for your website perhaps you should look for additional sources.

I think the Reader's Digest version of the overlong Noe Valley Voice is a great service! There's very little new in the Voice. It's basically a waste of paper to bring it home. I will be glad when they finally get the online version of the Voice up in a timely fashion.
