Happy Independence Day!

Go for a bike ride, a walk, a run, a swim... have fun and be safe this holiday weekend


A quick note to wish all of Streetsblog’s readers and supporters an enjoyable Fourth of July holiday. Barring any breaking news, Streetsblog San Francisco will be doing “light publishing” (headlines and syndication) on Wednesday, July 3rd. Then we’ll be on hiatus on the 4th and 5th, returning in full swing on Monday, July 8.

Meanwhile, be sure to save the date for our upcoming 10-year-anniversary party, Thursday, September 12.

Again, have a great holiday and thanks for your support!
