Bache Street is a residential lane nestled on the stylish south side of Bernal Heights, just off Crescent Avenue between Porter and Andover.
It’s a lovely place, but there’s a problem: According to @RadioChert, not even people who live on Bache Street can agree on how to pronounce it. That’s why an ad hoc referendum is now underway to reach a consensus on the matter.
As of Wednesday morning, the pronunciation tally seems to be:
Bah-chee – 2
Bay-shh – 1
Bach-ae – 0
Batch – 1
Bay-shee – 0
Bay-ch – 1
Bay-sh – 0
While the voting on Bache Street continues, historians and geo-genealogists are cordially invited to opine on this matter.
