Nuala Sawyer | San Francisco, Calif.

I live in what's technically called the "Upper Haight" or "Haight Ashbury" neighborhood of San Francisco. Haight Street always does well economically due to tourists, and neighboring Divisadero Street is rapidly becoming gentrified with new businesses moving in. This is the view of my street when I am standing in the park waiting for the light for the crosswalk to change. The second house in is Janis Joplin's old house - a neighborhood landmark and attraction for tourists, but really it's just another beautiful victorian house in the neighborhood with nothing unusual about it.
