NEMA Wheely Loves Bikes

September 14, 2013

BikeHave you heard of The Wiggle?  It’s bold.  It’s green.  And it’s right outside your soon to be new doorstep on Market Street!  The one mile, zig-zagging bicycle route from Market Street to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, minimizes hilly inclines for bicycle riders and connects Market St. and downtown with Golden Gate Park, The Sunset and Richmond neighborhoods via the Panhandle, making a commute or quick cruise a breeze.  Also right outside NEMA’s doorstep (at 10th and Market) is a parking station for the City’s new bike-share program.

NEMA: Graham Gillmore Interview

September 9, 2013

GillmoreIn the spirit of supporting original art, NEMA commissioned Graham Gillmore to create a single monumental work for the south tower lobby inspired by the phrase “Made in San Francisco”. Best known for his vitriolic use of text as an art form within edgy and often controversial work, Graham balances between treacherous antipodes: pathos and wit, defiance and charm, and more basically, the anguish of experience and the rapture of its aesthetic expression. His work is shown in galleries from Milan to Mexico City and from New York to Vancouver. What you may not know is that this Canadian born artist who divides his time between New York City and Winlaw, BC, was part of the “Young Romantics” exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery – just 1-year out of art school. To this day he still credits his friends from art school as having had the most profound effect on his work.

Meet Jennie, Office Coordinator at NEMA

August 19, 2013

jennieThree words to describe NEMA are:

New. Epic. Adventurous.

What’s your favorite place to grab lunch in the neighborhood and what would you order?

I love Ted’s Deli at 1530 Howard St, it’s a no nonsense deli counter where you can get a quick, but delicious sandwich. I’m a self-proclaimed sandwich snob and they have passed my test. I go for the Rich Boy on Dutch Crunch with extra pickles.

Over the last few years the San Francisco plant-it-yourself movement has blossomed around the bay. Urban gardens have found a home on patios and perches, while vertical gardens have sprouted indoors.  Communal outdoor spaces have been highly amenitized to maximize enjoyment that once belonged to those with big backyards.
