Syn City SF: The Haight-Ashbury
Haight St & Stanyan St
Welcome to Syn City SF: The Haight Ashbury! You should be standing on the southeast corner of Stanyan and Haight Streets. I'm CC Hart, a writer, poet and synesthete. I'll be your guide as we walk through this vibrant community. I'll introduce you to the history of the Haight-Ashbury and help you experience the Haight as I do, through the filter of synesthesia. Synesthetes like me have senses that are united; we might see music as visual patterns, or taste letters and numbers. I'll share more with you about synesthesia as we walk together through San Francisco's psychedelic past.
We will be walking east on Haight Street, away from the park. Let's go now.
Please watch for traffic and be aware of your surroundings as we begin our journey through this colorful neighborhood. VoiceMap uses your location to play commentary automatically.
