    Why is Noe Valley labelled as Cole valley in some maps?

    • Xavier Guillaume in response to Elisa

      Probably because the cartographer doesn’t realize they are two different places.

    I live in “I Dunno” and I’m actually really impressed that my ‘hood made it into 14 of these maps. Usually maps of “San Francisco” cut out anything south of Bernal and the 280 101 split (about 1/4 of the city of San Francisco).

    • Renee in response to Crocker

      I call it the Lower Third. I’m more than happy to keep it hidden from tourists and hipsters.

    It is kind of awkward that this post highlights “A Large Population of Asians” as being of importance to the Tech Industry… Otherwise, this was a fun post to read. Go “SF Natives” (of whom many are Chinese)!
