19. Maybe I drove down on a bad day.
A friend in SF mentioned that Vermont was the windiest in the city several years ago, so I took a drive down it. The flower beds were full of weeds, there was graffiti everywhere, and I literally had to drive around garbage cans in the street.

I just took a "virtual" drive down Vermont again using Google Streetview, and it looks a lot better than it did when I went down it. The three foot tall weeds weren't in the flower beds and the garbage cans were nowhere to be seen. The graffiti was gone too, but you can see the painted over graffiti patches EVERYWHERE marking the spots where it once was.

I don't know how old the Streetview photos are but they were certainly taken a while after I went down the street, and after it was cleaned up.
