A Visual Tale of Transition on Mission Street

Bernal Northwest

I took this photo of the 3300 block of Mission Street, right across from our Taoist Safeway, last weekend. Looking at the image after I got home, I saw many divergent elements of the transformation taking place in this part of the neighborhood: The world-class Ichi Sushi, right alongside a nail shop, which sits next to a post-hippie actupuncturist and a check-cashing shop. There’s a backpack-toting hipster on one end of the block, and a person in a wheelchair waiting for the bus at the other. New meets old, and old rubs shoulders with new, and the only thing that we know for sure is that it will all look different and somehow the same a few years from now.
