I love exploring San Francisco's neighborhoods and have really been enjoying Rebecca Solnit's Infinite City with its amazing layers of culture, creativity and history.  I stumbled on another fantastic approach to the city: The Islands of San Francisco, on Burrito Justice's website.  The map and visuals are great, and I love the thought of neighborhoods as islands and streets as canals.  Sometimes in SF, it seems as if the neighborhoods are islands--each with their own distinctive feeling and culture, defined in part by geography.  Enjoy this blog and its exploration of the Mission and the City.

There seems to be a theme this week.  Do you know of other maps of San Francisco worth exploring?
