Hoodline recently teamed up with the Central City Extra to cover midtown San Francisco. Expect good things to come of this collaboration.

“Hale Building” (2012)
I was recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal about tech firms moving into the mid-Market corridor thanks to payroll tax breaks given by the Lee Administration at City Hall. Although volumes of information were omitted, what was published is accurate. Neither the mayor’s office nor District Six Supervisor Jane Kim have thus far responded. “Mid-Market Street, as Seen by One of Its Own”
Hale Building, 1905. The Hale Building, rebuilt after the 1906 earthquake and fire, opened in 1902 as the second of several Hale Brothers Department Stores and is currently home to help-desk software firm Zendesk, Inc.
Critics and audiences alike love “Tenderloin”, Cutting Ball Theater‘s new production about San Francisco’s inner city neighborhood. The play has been given an extended run through 24 June due to sold-out houses, so I strongly advise you to get tickets in advance. A visually engaging set, luscious sound design, and brilliant acting all combine to create a memorable evening of intimate theater that for many people will reveal the Tenderloin in ways they’ve never before seen it. For more about the play and my personal involvement with it, there’s a terrific article in the Los Angeles Times and an interview on KQED Forum with writer/director Annie Elias, actors David Sinaiko and Tristan Cunningham, and me.
