Too Uppity for NOPA

Remember the billboard at Hayes and Divisadero that we posted earlier? The anti-war, anti-gas guzzling Uppity Bike Commuters appropriated an apparently abandoned Clear Channel billboard to plaster their poster. No more. The UBC posters are down; the billboard has been removed.

While blogger Dale of Dale's Scene took comfort in the clear brick wall with no advertising of any sort, he exposed other problems nearby with the Harding Theatre. He notes the back-and-forth discourse over the development of the performance and potential housing space, but he finds fault with the landlord's disregard for his property. See the post "Blight on Hayes from the Harding Theatre?" With Divisadero set for its mini-makeover soon, it's time to get the street properties in better shape.
