SoMissPo Lands on Google Maps

New, 23 comments

An anonymous tipster hipped Mission Mission to San Francisco's newest microhood, at least according to the almighty Google. It's called Somisspo (SoMissPo?), and it's right smack dab in the middle of where SoMa and the Inner Mission meet a corner of Potrero Hill. (Need a visual reference? Think the San Francisco Design Center or "under all those freeways.") The microhood has been recognized for years by Yahoo!, Flickr, Redfin and even Yelp, but this is the first time we've seen it on an actual Google Map. Hell, even Curbed asked you, the readers, to name the area back in November of 2007. No idea who coined it or why, but congrats nonetheless. Now let's move onto solidifying more important microhoods: CIVIC VALLEY. Make it happen, Google!
