I thought I was familiar with the this area, I am in it often enough but I was wrong. I haven't walked west of 9th Ave in a very long time.
Last night, while waiting to see Love, Loss and What I Wore (fantastic--five women on stage telling a story--recommended for women only) we wandered over to 10th Ave and walked a few blocks up and around. Great looking restaurants with outdoor seating areas, tree lined streets, new and quaint old construction. I'm only sorry I only had my little Olympus camera.
I put the pictures on Facebook.
