Academy of Art Moves to Uptown Tenderloin …

To the Editor:

Nice to see some cash injected in the neighborhood. Whatever the resident of that majestic building, that glorious image the passerby glimpsed from the wide open door of the culinary seances is gone forever. It was like a lesson of anatomy: the chef teacher centered with his back to the front door high on the back balcony like an orchestra conductor, in semi circles facing the door rows of students listened attentively dressed in their white aprons. The lofty image gave poise and melted with the ornate architecture to create a vivid tableau that saturates the senses.

City Hall must reply by making the streets more Public Transit friendly to bring more people in the neighborhood, rather than more cars. It is awful to see that none of the streets in the Tenderloin have a transit corridor. Hardly on Geary where cars drive on the bus lane with impunity.
