NVV May 2017: 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 notable highlights from the latest issue. Links are to stories we've covered here on NVSF or other resources. Follow the NVV link at the bottom for full articles and all the ads.

May 2017

Front Page: Local family commemorates their family in a mural on Comerford Alley; local stylist organizes free services for hospitalized kids; rat poison kills coyote in Douglass Park.

Letters: Letter from a Trump supporter from New York about the "arrogant residents of San Franny."

Features: Noe Valley's lone indie newsstand, Good News, is closing after 22 years; the reasons are the Internet and a key magazine distributor shut down.

Cost of Living in Noe: The average cost of a Noe Valley home in March was $3.1 million; the most expensive home sold that month was a $6.2 million home on a double lot on Fair Oaks.

Store Trek: Baron's Quality Meats, 1706 Church St at 29th; Mabuhay, 1195 Church St at 24th 

Rumors and Tidbits: The Town Square finally has power - look for more events like the Square Dance soon. The Noe Valley Association got a grant for parklet furniture and new benches on 24th St. and sun umbrellas for the Town Square. The Farmer's Market's Happy Boy Farms vendor has a GoFundMe campaign for flood damage from this year's rains. The plant-based food service and restaurant Le Cupboard is opening soon. A pizza oven was moved into the soon-to-be Sasa's Pizzeria (nee Fattoush). Radio Shack will be gone by the end of May. The shops next to St. Clair's have been demolished to make way for new retail and housing; construction should take 14 months. Noe Valley activists created a project that spurred 1 million calls to Congress on issues people are concerned about - while they were also facing an owner move-in eviction (!).

April 2017

Cost of Living in Noe: February was a slow month for sales; the most expensive sale was a $4,025,000 TIC on a corner lot on Valley St.

Store Trek: Chez Marius, 4063 24th St. near Castro

Rumors and Tidbits: Radio Shack's days are numbered; David's Tea is closed and the space is renting for $7,000 a month; the old See Jane Run space is also for rent, asking $9,000/month. The owners of the never-ending mystery restaurant at 1298 Church St. claim it will open in April and serve "nutritious gourmet food" while also "hosting events to think and educate about the food system and how we can use it as an opportunity to make our health, planet and communities thrive." The fire station house is for sale again - for $5.7 million. Authentic Tattoo has opened in the old Sirena Botanica space.
