NVV March 2019: 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.

March 2019

Front Page: A piece about Bay Nature magazine, a tenuous connection to Mary Ellen Pleasant, the mother of civil rights in California, to a house on Laidley St; and an ode to the 48 Quintara/24th bus route.

Letters: A letter from a neighbor who has an owl in her yard on Alvarado. A thank you to the designer of the planters in the Noe Valley Town Square. Another neighbor writes that Urban Remedy uses too much plastic.

Cost of Living in Noe Valley: The average price of a single-family home in January was $2.99 million.

Store Trek: Vive La Tarte, 4026 24th St. between Noe and Castro

Rumors and Tidbits: London Breed visited Noe Valley last month and toured merchants on 24th Street. The first tenant in the newly subdivided Real Foods space is SkinSpirit skincare clinic which offers "cutting-edge products and services in its clinics, including Botox, dermal fillers, facials, laser treatments, and other non-invasive aesthetic services" - it expects to open this spring. Pete's Cleaners next to the Town Square is set to become a fish market "that would also prepare and serve seafood dishes to eat there or take out." The former Fattoush space at 1361 Church, has been rented to the owners of Bernal Heights Pizzeria which is moving from its current location at 59 30th St., on the Noe Valley/Bernal border. Royal Cleaners is closed and the space is for rent. Ditto Rare Device. And the large commercial space at 3818 24th St. that was going to become an urgent medical care facility is now DOA.
