Dear Babe,

Holy Crap! Where in this town can I find some freaking quiet?!?!?

Neurotic from Noise

Dear NN,

The first and only place I can even think of to find quiet in San Francisco is Grace Cathedral at California btw Jones and Taylor. The walls are so thick you can’t even hear the traffic going by. It’s also cool in the summer, warmer than the icy SF wind, and mostly junkie free.

Go have at that quiet,


Nagging questions holding you back? Babe Scanlon’s got your answer. A SF native, she’s been figuring this place out far longer than she cares to admit, and now she’s ready to share. Email her at and let the veil of confusion lift. Please do keep in mind: Babe Scanlon is not presenting herself as an expert in anything that means you can sue her or the Appeal if you take her advice and your life tanks. Her recommendations are just that: recommendations.
