I went to an Urban Land conference at the Hotel Nikko downtown this morning. The tone of the meeting was pitched somewhere between "high anxiety" and "coping" -- which would be "limbo," I suppose. During one of the coffee breaks, I snapped this view overlooking Ellis and Mason Street into The Tenderloin. For all the drama in real estate, the economy and thoughts of the future, a view like this one reminds me that daily commerce will still go on, some new buildings will get built, and people will always go about their day whether the sky is falling or not.
