I'm a former college professor who taught urban and cultural studies at East Coast and English universities. I have 25 years of experience as a docent at an art museum, conducting over 3,000 guests. My love affair with this city has flourished, in its openness and tolerance for cultural freedom.
We'll start with coffee and a discussion of how the cultural and political revolution of the 60's still influences the city's lifestyle. The qualities that make the city unique ,such as tolernace and experimentation, will be exemplified in our walk in Dogpatch. As a vibrant and distinctive neigborhood it offers surprises around every corner. It is reminiscent to me of the period in New York City…
Please wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring your camera and be prepared for variable weather.
Dogpatch is an area at the south end of the city, bordered by the Bay and Portrero Hill. Our walk starts at 22nd and 3rd, and covers buildings both formerly and currently used for commercial production and distribution. We’ll cover around 12 to 15 blocks in approximately two hours.
