Yes, that’s right: Before there was Bernalwood, there was Bernaltown. Bernaltown was a 1997 film project by Gregory Gavin, starring neighborhood kids and a variety of locals. It premiered in early June 1997, in an outside screening at the Bernal … Continue reading
The house next door has been for sale for months — you can check it out right here. Trouble is, squatters have already moved in…
Call me a complainer, but how about replacing Eugenia Street with a chairlift that runs from Mission to Winfield? A proposal like that would even get me to vote for Leland Yee.
Warm weather isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, rain in May can stave off a tragedy. Here’s a cautionary tale from a time in the recent (ok, distant) past.
This view of Banks Street south of Jarboe (right across from the Paul Revere playground and down the block from the Coca-Cola billboard) is virtually the same now as it was 86 years ago. Well, except that you’re not really … Continue reading

A reminiscence on barbers, and streetcars, and how both of these things don’t exist in Bernal Heights anymore, even though some people really need them.
We’re not sure, but we think Lupito is still missing. Please let us know.
We recently discovered some unnerving evidence of UMO’s to Holly Park. What could these markings mean for little-leaguers and kickballers on the Hill?
