Eeeeeeeeeeeek! It’s a image of hell! A full-color vision of the darkest nightmare that lurks in every Bernalista’s deepest subconscious. A photo that could convert even the most laissez-faire YIMBY into a foaming NIMBY reactionary. And even more frightening: This isn’t one of Bernalwood’s goofy Photoshop stunts!
No, it’s very real. But fortunately, it isn’t here.
Instead, Reader Mason snapped this photo in Pleasanton, an entire town which is more or less founded on the idea of being the antithesis of everything Bernal Heights is about. So pinch yourself, close your eyes, rock gently back and forth, and repeat after me:
“It’s not here! It’s not here! It’s not here! It’s not here! It’s not here! It’s not here…”
