It's Friday, and time to check in with the week's happenings at our sister site and your friendly neighborhood blog, Curbed SF.
1) That glorious Central Subway Plan? Lacking a lot of the "plan" part.
2) The corner of Broadway and Columbus—which apparently wants to be a plaza—is going to host the solar-powered flock of 23 flying, illuminated books seen above (via Artdaily).
3) Upon taking a tour of the much-hyped Cubix development, someone realizes that the
dorm rooms studios there are really, really cramped.
4) Oh good: the Castro figured out a way to stop tour buses from stopping to gawk at the gays.
