I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Castro Street Spring 2008

A walk by 19th Street from Dolores Park and Presto we are in the Gay District of San Francisco, aka "The Castro" Spring 2008!
*
San Francisco's gay village is most concentrated in the business district that is located on Castro Street from Market Street to 19th Street. It extends down Market Street toward Church and on both sides of the Castro neighborhood from Church Street to Eureka Street. Although the greater gay community was, and is, concentrated in the Castro many gay people live in the surrounding residential areas bordered by the Mission District, Noe Valley, Twin Peaks, and Haight-Ashbury neighborhoods. Some consider it to include Duboce Triangle and Dolores Heights which both have a strong LGBT presence.
*
Castro Street itself runs south through Noe Valley, crossing the 24th Street business district, and terminating a few blocks farther south as it moves toward the Glen Park neighborhood.

It must be so wonderful to live in such a culturally diverse place, Andy. I have grown up in NH my whole life, and thankfully I have always been surrounded by open minded, culturally diverse individuals. But we do lack a huge sense of cultural experiences here. To get a sense of culture we need to travel to Boston or similar areas. I really love all your videos about where you live, and your travels, etc. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for those words. I grew Up in Puerto Rico and most people can't seem to think beyound the physical boundaries of the Island. That's why I am here at Starfleet Headquarters lol!

That really is great that you live in such a culturally diverse place. I live in Columbus, Ohio, and it's kind of diverse, but not nearly as much as there. It looks absolutely beautiful there. :) Thanks for sharing the video with us!
