Improbable things you might find on a rooftop in the Tenderloin

1. Michael Douglas

2. An Airstream trailer

When I saw this post over at Curbed, my heart went all a-flutter.

WTF Moment of the Day

Does anyone know what's going on here? A plugged-in commenter writes: If you thought a single family home in tenderloin was weird, there's also a streamliner chilling on a roof down there:


Crazy, right? We learned from the comments that this bizarre spectacle is to be found in the 100 block of Turk in the Tenderloin. Well, as it happens, I work in the TL, so I tried to calm my breathing and then walked right on over there. Guess what? It's real, and it's spectacular.

BTW, people tend to stare at you if you're a reasonably well-dressed white guy taking pictures in the 100 block of Turk. Also, there are a lot of people drinking airplane bottles of liquor in the 100 block of Turk.

How did Airstream get up there? It obviously took a lot of effort. WTF is going on here?
