For many years Geary Ave has been a haven for working artists and musicians, with the street's affordable and sizeable industrial space being ideal for creating makeshift studios for starving artists. Many of Geary's artistic pioneers now enjoy significant success, while much of the neighborhood's current buzz owes it to these men and women who opened themselves to the idea of using converted factory space to create their art. ๐Ÿ“ท by @Alexbergquist (cc. @artisanfactory @thrush_holmes)
