I hate the term real estate. It's cold and business-y, everything that tends to make me hide under the bed. What I write about is space: homes, cafes, places where you can do work, pet the cat, and Google your next-door-neighbor from 10 years ago. I write about places. And I like to do it from a personal perspective.

"Part of the change that's happening on Sixth requires a constant upkeep. It's the "broken windows" theory in action, which holds that immediate and consistent handling of the little problems -- graffiti, trash, shattered glass -- can prevent greater neighborhood decline. In other words, if you can change the way a neighborhood is perceived, you can change the neighborhood."

An interesting look at the un-gentrification of San Francisco's Sixth Street.
