A Story of Page Street

I should point out that this story is based on the ramblings of a largely-drunk storyteller (based on the ramblings of an equally-drunk storyteller). So it's entirely possible that it's not exactly true. But it's such a great story, I have to share.

My neighborhood used to be very sketchy. Extremely sketchy. In fact, the buildings across the street from my apartment building used to be occupied by squatters who had broken through a police lock to enter - and eventually live in - one of the buildings. Apparently, the block was largely run by a bunch of crack dealers.

Here's the good part. The neighbors started to notice a yellow Corvette pulling up to the buildings across the street. And for some odd reason, the squatters were always playing The Village People at over-the-top volumes. Then (rumor has it) they found out that the driver of the Corvette allegedly was the original policeman from The VP.

Sound beyond unbelievable? Not in San Francisco.

    This made me laugh. What a great story from just across the street!
