San Francisco has a small community of obsessives who are so freaking intense about their sushi that nobody dare try to tell them who serves the best fish in the city or delivers the best experience. Some of these self-proclaimed experts have been to Japan a zillion times and have a very broad, educated basis for comparison, while others just like to flex their opinions as loudly as possible.
San Francisco’s best angle is often through a single lens reflex camera or a digital viewfinder. Photogenic with startling contrasts of new and old, land and sea, the City has been a popular subject even from the early days when English-born photographer Eadweard Muybridge captured some of her famous curves and inclines.
The San Francisco Travel Association has selected ten unique businesses to receive its 2012/2013 Neighborhood Partnership Grants. Now in its third year, the grant program was created to extend the economic impact of San Francisco’s tourism industry into the city’s diverse neighborhoods and involve more businesses located outside the traditional visitor areas in San Francisco Travel’s programs.
