This San Francisco Chronicle article by J.K. Dineen highlights the new retail stores and companies that are making San Francisco’s 6th Street their home. While 6th Street is often seen as a particularly “blighted” area in the city, its new businesses seem to be drawn to its “eclectic liveliness”, affordability, and true “city” feel.

New companies and restaurants highlighted in the article include:

  • Thrasher (skateboard magazine and apparel company)
  • Create Skate (skateboard store)
  • Pentacle (cafe and art gallery)
  • Rumpus Room (bar)
  • Falafel Ness (kosher Middle Eastern restaurant)
  • Chabad SoMa Shul: Positively Sixth Street (community center and synagogue)
  • Frena (kosher bakery)
  • A Nepalese restaurant by Binita Pradhan
