  •  I started on the (relatively) posh side when I (8+ / 0-)

    first moved here and lived with my aunt - Leavenworth and Sacramento.  She moved to LA and I moved to Mason and Pine.  I still remember going to the San Francisco "County Fair" in '83 and there was someone from the Nob Hill Neighbors Association along with all the other neighborhood groups.  I checked into joining, and the woman at the booth asked where I lived - when I said Pine and Mason, she sniffed "I guess that's still considered Nob Hill".  Her facial expression was as if I'd just spit on the table.

    I didn't join.

      I started relatively posh as well. First place was in a huge flat in Pacific Heights that was the remnant of a '60s commune. Then near the Castro, then at Pine & Jones (just around the corner from the Mark), then I slid down Nob Hill. Now (as you know) I'm out in the fog belt. :-)
