New Year's greeting via Google.
A Neighborhood News Feature
    
We all have hopes and best intentions for the New Year. We wondered what is on our neighbors’ minds for 2018, so here are some ideas collected from folks-on-the-street — randomly selected in each of the neighborhoods served by The Western Edition:

Alamo Square
Alamo Square Park — “Kayte”
“I just went through a big life change. For the new year I’m focusing on meditation and yoga and finding strength for myself.”

Bayview Hunters Point
Laundroland, 3rd Street and Fairfax — “Clarence”
“I’m going to give up drinking. It’s time. I don’t want to end up in the hospital, so there’s urgency to the emergency. I can do it.”

Fillmore
Wise and Son Bagels, Fillmore near Geary — “Lavette”
“I want no more people living in tents or under bridges. No more families living in cars. You’re in the media? You tell [Mayor] Ed Lee, that’s what I want in the New Year.”

Hayes Valley
Behind the Zen Center, Laguna Street and Lily Alley — “Rick”
“I intend to work much harder at my investments. They say the stock market is going down. I’m going to put more energy into it.”

Japantown
Japantown Mall Peace Plaza — “Oknamho and Boss”
“I’m pretty old, but I hope Boss and I are happy and business gets better. I hope everybody does better.”

NoPa
Bus stop, corner of Divisidero and Hayes Streets — “John”
“I usually give something up for the new year. This time I’m adding something new to my life. I’m a student, so I’m taking up French. Au revoir.”
