Going Over Fifty-five?

There's some irony in naming a building for the over-55 set after Frank Norris, the San Francisco novelist and "Social Darwinist" who died at 32. But there it is, tucked away in the Upperloin on Polk Street, Frank Norris Place. Smart-looking condos just a few steps from O'Reilly's Holy Grail and Good Vibrations (their map, not ours.) We were looking for condos under $500K, which these are, except the parking spaces are $50K extra. Presumably one can buy two spaces and rent one out. At $250 a month that's a 6% return, more than enough to cover a month's worth of Cialis and hookers.
