    I think I lived there at almost the identical time period as you, and in the exact same neighborhood, too! Hello (former) neighbor! Yes, I think the day I gave up my apartment on Haight Street between Scott and Pierce was one of the saddest of my life. After living in the same place for nearly ten years I knew all the local shopkeepers and would run into friends walking down the street every day. There's no place in the world like San Francisco ... not even close!

      i first moved to SF in 99 and all i could get was a crappy studio in Hayes Valley in the formerly pink, now beige, building on Octavia in between Oak and Fell.  lived there for about 5 years moving into larger apartments as money and circumstances dictated.  finally, had to move when they started construction on the Octavia Street Blvd and tore down the Fell Street Exit which was pretty much right outside my window.

      wound up at 17th and Church a block off the foot of Dolores Park (which I miss the most).   stayed there for five years with a lemons, oranges and figs in my backyard and a highly coveted washer dryer.

      then met someone needed more space and lucked into one of the nicest apartments i have seen in SF on the corner of Page and Pierce.

      noc noc, mad dog, upper playground, international cafe, jazz at international cafe, dubose park, the wiggle, zeitgeist, alamo square, alamo square sunsets... truly a magical city.
