Although this post is a little long, I found it interesting and worthwhile. The section discussing areas of interest was especially thought provoking. I really enjoyed brief discussion about San Franciscans drawing their mental maps of the city.

Across the sketches and interviews, Annechino and Cheng observed a common theme in how the interviewees described the city.

Many of San Francisco’s neighborhoods have a single street that commercial activity is centered around. And these “main drags” or “commercial corridors” act as destinations, attracting people from other parts of the city.
