Parts of San Francisco resemble the poorest slums in the world — even though the city is one of the richest in America.
“There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” (DAILY CALLER)
A website and related app that allows local residents to request maintenance or non-emergency services from the city has received 16,034 complaints with the keyword ‘feces’ in the last week at the time of this writing, and many pertain to human waste in public places.
The point is, here, that when a city becomes very Left leaning in it’s culture and years run (city council, mayors, etc.), it becomes a “shithole” city. LITERALLY.
“The city suffers from an excess of [human] excrement on public streets and even in the innards of subway escalators, where it renders them unusable.” (FAST COMPANY)
…HotPads used “reports made to 311 in San Francisco from DataSF,” mapping 4,000 data points (a.k.a. poop sites) from January to June 2013.” Mapping S.F.’s most pooped-upon neighborhoods–and their paradoxically pricey real estate
Most of us might guess this list, but in case we need confirmation, the top 3 poopy neighborhoods are:
Mission District – 16th Street BART Station
South of Market
But prices therein do not reflect the frequency of feces. Witness:
Poop strewn though it may be, the Tenderloin has enjoyed some new-found glory (and inflated home/rent prices) in the recent past, thanks to a tech surge led primarily by Twitter anchoring itself in that area. See Redfin’s data at right.
Of all of these pooped-upon neighborhoods, SoMa has increased in value the most dramatically, thanks to a combination of new construction, UC Mission Bay, and the aforementioned tech boom in the city. Again per Redfin, “The asking price of homes for sale in SoMa has increased 96% since December last year, while the number of homes for sale has increased 83.3%.”
A web developer named Jennifer Wong created interactive maps entitled “(Human) Wasteland” that illustrate the concentrations of human excrement in San Francisco, as reports Reuters.
The maps are intended to shed light on the amount of individuals living homeless in San Francisco. Wong created the maps using a city database that organizes telephone complaints to the Department of Public Works about human poop and urine….
….But she says perception is sometimes the reality to clients. The drive to get to her parking space is often trashed, where people have also used the bathroom, and she says the homeless on the street make for an uncomfortable arrival for her clients.
So she’s considering not renewing her lease and moving elsewhere.
“Who wants to come to a place where there’s litter on the streets, the bouquet of urine is in the air, I mean it will eventually take a toll,” she said….
One commentator said this of a story reported on the issue:
Finally an example of a run down, shot-up, burned out, poverty-stricken, urine-soaked, rat-infested, crime-ridden, feces-friendly city run by democRATS actually delivering on their promise of Free Shit!!
Survey: 34% of Portlanders considered leaving because of homelessness
….The average Portlander sees someone living in a tent and someone panhandling five times a week. Residents said they see drug paraphernalia and human waste or urine more than twice a week….
Los Angeles, etc. It is all the same story. Many of these places pass out free, sterile, needles to the drug addicted… offer food and comfort, and a “no harass” policy for the police. Then they raise the taxes to grow these services on the businesses affected by them.
How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station. …
The Investigate [sic] Unit spent three days assessing conditions on the streets of downtown San Francisco and discovered trash on each of the 153 blocks surveyed. While some streets were littered with items as small as a candy wrapper, the vast majority of trash found included large heaps of garbage, food, and discarded junk. The investigation also found 100 drug needles and more than 300 piles of feces throughout downtown.
