Everything South City = Home

South San Francisco, CA July 3, 2013

We have a lot of followers, especially on our facebook page, of folks who once lived in South City and still lovingly call this home. As the 4th of July comes up many share posts about the good old days. One native in particular, Lewis Caputa, caught our eye when he posted his appreciation for our work on Everything South City. This one was for him and all those who miss being ‘home’.  This photo reached well over 5,000 people with over 250 folks on our FB page ‘liking’ and the following comments being added by some.  The best part is seeing old friends hook up again via ESC.  No matter how big we grow, we still are a small town after all, thanks in part to social media.

    I left SSF after graduation in ’56. Have since lived from San Diego to Redding and now live in Hot Springs, AR. I still like to get back to SSF to visit only. I have family there still and then my Mother and Grandparents are interned at Cypress Lawn.

    So City was great when I was a kid growing up could go anywhere and not worry. The cops would kick you in the butt if you did something wrong. But the city has changed so much and there are area’s I dont wish to go or visit. If is a shame a great city has changed the way it has. I have longed moved but do come and visit and see so many things wrong if they would reach out and fix them but like any city they are caught in the money thing. I will alway remember the letters sliding on them as a kid, watching the hill burn every year these were things of home.
