1985 Gentrification Quiz Predicted Your Favorite Cupcake Shop

New, 1 comment

Or, as the San Francisco Chronicle referred to it nearly 20 years ago, a bakery with a name that doesn't include the word "bakery." The quiz also predicted your favorite needlepoint boutique, that place down the block that serves sweet-potato gelato, and the newsstand where you occasionally pick up Deutsch Vogue, along with delightfully dated phenomena such as the "Travel Agency." Score your neighborhood below, and note that the quaint-sounding five dollars a pound for coffee beans should be adjusted for inflation.
