Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof

The sounds of North Beach

We recently took a walk through Ready State’s neighborhood, San Francisco’s North Beach, in the morning, at midday, and in the evening, to capture the area’s signature sounds.

Those sounds, in the order you hear them, are the Chinese pop music that tai chi practitioners play in the morning in Washington Square; the bells of Saints Peter and Paul Church; the tsunami siren (technically the emergency siren) that sounds every Tuesday at noon; Army aviators and the Navy’s Blue Angels making survey flights above the city during Fleet Week; and music from the bars on Grant Avenue as night takes over from the concerns of the day.

Listen to the sounds of North Beach
