On Saturdays, Sept. 19 and 26, Voice roving reporter Shayna Rubin asked pedestrians at the intersection of 24th and Sanchez streets:
What business would you like to see open on 24th Street?
Brandi Richards, 25th Street: I would like to have a wine bar in Noe Valley. We have everything else. We just need to have a wine bar that has nice wines and can serve wines. Something like PlumpJack that could serve wine.
Dan Becker, 26th Street:
I would like to see a high-class deli place with interesting sandwiches. There used to be one here, but it closed. I would also like to see a family-friendly place with good music and food. I don't want to see any more specialty stores. There needs to be something that brings people out.
Donna Fogel, 26th Street: I would like to see a home store, a more eco-home, upscale home accessories place. I would also like to see some things in the Mission come into Noe Valley, like Bi-Rite Creamery and Ritual Coffee.
Kirsti Gardner and Gita Das, Dolores Street:
A Trader Joe's would be nice. A preschool would be good as well, now that the Noe Valley Ministry is renovating [and the Noe Valley Nursery School may have to relocate temporarily].
Mary Moser and Laura Cotugno, Romain Street: We would like to see a movie theater or a nice fish and meat market.
Rebecca Johnson, Jersey Street: No more nail salons. I would like to see a soup and salad place with homemade soup and fresh salad with unusual ingredients.
Robbie Johnson, Clipper Street: I would like to see a butcher or a fish place. Place where you know the guy who chops the food into bits. Or another used bookstore.
Tom Whitter, Jersey Street: I would like to see a men's clothing store. It would be nice to have one close by, not at the Westfield or over the hill in the Castro.
Tim Canden and Sarah Carlestedt, 28th Street:
I would like to see a local movie theater that played artsy films. That would be cool. Back in the day, they had one here.
Fernando Lopez and Mayra Lopez and Lola, 26th Street: We would like to see a smoothie place open up. We would also like to see another record store open up.
