So – I know, I know, I’m sure everyone knows where this is, but for all the time I’ve lived here I’ve always wondered where this stereotypical vista is. You know, the Full House park? It was in So I Married An Axe Murderer too. But goddammit, I found it. Apparently, it’s called Alamo Square. Is this its best photographic representation ever? No. But I don’t care. I found it. I’m done. Were I George Costanza, this would be the point at which I’d throw up my hands, say thank you, and leave the meeting. Booyah.


Really, it’s the little victories. Although, not knowing its location was sort of a special mystery to me in itself. But as we say in law school – can’t unring that bell. And the reality was different than the image you have in your head – if you haven’t been there either. Those ladies are almost hidden in plain sight. At Steiner and Hayes.

    Alamo Square was the first place I ended up after driving into the city for the very first time. I sat on the stone wall, and said “Huh… that looks like the First House house…” It was.
