NVV Nov 2012: 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 outside sources as the Voice doesn't post stories until the middle of the month.

November 2012

Front Page: Local authors roundup; neighbors rally to help families displaced by fires; interview with Top Chef Chris Cosentino of Incanto.
Letters: A complaint about a screaming child at a restaurant (and the rude backlash); a long explanation from Scott Wiener about tree removal as part of Glen Canyon Park improvements [PDF].

Cost of Living in Noe: Inventory is tight - which means most homes sold quickly and for more than their listed price (including this one with a checkered past that sold for 45% over asking).

Store Trek: Mill (3751 24th St.)

Rumors: The Town Square project has raised $435,000 of the $2 million needed; Facebook CEO Mark Zukerberg bought a house near Noe; a vague unconfirmed rumor that the corner at 24th and Sanchez that First Republic had tried to occupy has been rented to "a retail store, probably clothing;" the owner of the old Mikey-Tom Market space that was most recently Kohler Jones wants to sell, not rent; Playhouse is closed; Crafthouse is replacing Joe's and planning to open Dec. 1.
