Re: 'Neighborhood Names'

Whenever a house on my old block of 18th Avenue between Vicente and Wawona is listed for sale, the ad invariably describes the location as "West Portal"--which it is NOT. It has always been the Parkside, but some people like to stretch a bit. I've even seen ads for houses that truly are in the West Portal area described as "adjacent to St. Francis Wood".

The Western Neighborhoods Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
