Westlake

Newer Older

Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes filled with ticky tack. Westlake was the neighborhood responsible for inspiring that classic song. Colorful little homes dot the hillsides. It's a bit of a drive from Downtown SF, but if you are coming up 280, be sure to take John Daly and go exploring there. There is an elementary school where you can get this great view from.

    "Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of tickytacky
    Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
    There's a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one
    And they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same."

    You couldn't have captured this Malvina Reynolds "Little Boxes" song any better. BRAVO!

    CorporateWhore, I read your lyrics and thought "It's a Pete Seeger song, who is this Malvina Reynolds person?" Then I Googled, to find that we are both right. They co-wrote it, or they are her words and his music, or whatever. :)

    I lived in Daly City for a few years and was glad to move. They have to paint the houses like that so they can tell them apart, otherwise you'd get lost among the clones. It embodies all the disadvantages of suburbia (although it was nice to be so close to SF and the beach).
