"With both mayors known for their style as much for their policies,
it came as no surprise when Newsom took some time to admire Brown's shoes.
Newsom was the picture of ease and sophistication, chatting with girls
from Sts. Peter and Paul School and shooting baskets one-handed while
holding a cup of Caffe Roma coffee in the other.
"This is a terrific place and a terrific neighborhood," Newsom said of
the renovation that turned the playground's clubhouse, tiny and outdated,
into a gleaming 2,200 square-foot multi-use community building. "I love
it," said the mayor. Later, in his public remarks, Newsom said the renovated
pool includes the first publicly funded dry sauna in the country."
