  1. Electric scooters rolling back into SF October 15Read the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Oct 10 | Curbed

    After months of rolling around in limbo, thee popular but divisive app-enabled electric scooters are set to return to the streets of San Francisco on October 15. A spokesperson for Scoot, one of only two outfits that can now legally rent scooters to San Franciscans, tells Curbed SF via email that the company is set to deploy its two-wheeled get-arounds on Monday, with a preview event in the Bayview this Friday. The Bayview locale is perhaps a critical detail, given that the San Francisco Examiner says Scoot will reserve scooter service mostly to eastern neighborhoods, ranging from the Castro to the waterfront but mostly excluding western neighborhoods and the city's southern flank.

  14. Rainbow light installation lights up Harvey Milk PlazaRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 9, 2017 | Curbed

    It's not unusual for rain to precede a rainbow, and as such the drizzly Wednesday weather in the Castro didn't hold up the unveiling of "Harvey's Halo," a new light art piece overlooking Harvey Milk Plaza and dedicated on the 40th anniversary of Milk's election to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. The new, temporary installation from Illuminate, the same non-profit group that brought us the Bay Lights and Summer of Love light show at the Conservatory of Flowers , projects LED beams over the SoulCycle building immediately next to the plaza in what's supposed to look something like a rainbow crown, fired toward the sky accompanied by the sounds of Queen's "We Are the Champions" Wednesday night.

    Oct 26, 2017 | Curbed

    On Friday the city will unveil a new public art installation at Jane Warner Plaza , located at the intersection of Castro, Market, and 17th Streets, in the form of six giant LED dandelions created by Aphidoidea , a Los Angeles-based arts firm. In a proposal to the San Francisco Arts Commission and the Castro Community Benefits District, Aphidoidea laid out their initial vision for the project titled The Seed , playing on the whimsical theme of making wishes by blowing on dandelion seeds: We are proposing six, larger than life abstract dandelion seeds scattered around the Jane Warner Plaza, [...] creating a backdrop that enhances the plaza during the day, and during the night with different color and animated lights.
