Local photog Ron Font has a photoessay up on SF Public Press showing the shuttering of Sutter Street. Over the past few years, the recession has hit Sutter Street hard, closing galleries and shops. A few new businesses have popped up in the area, mostly tiny hipster shops like Invisible Stripes, but there’s still a lot of empty storefront. Now, as humin blogged earlier, whether you consider Sutter Street part of the Tendernob is a matter of opinion.
