D Street

I discovered a web site called Turn Here: Short Films, Cool Places. The places are SF, NYC, and LA. I found a 4 minute film on my neighborhood and was surprised to find out that Divisadero–one block down from me and a main street here in SF–is called ‘D Street’ in the film. I consider myself a Bay Area native and I’ve lived in the city for years, but never ever have I heard Divis referred to as D Street. That’s news to me. I think the film tried to ghetto-ize my hood more than it truly is. Nevertheless, it’s kinda cool that I can now direct people to a film about the area I live in, Western Addition. Check it out. The website overall is good, too.
