This is the view from the top of the building I live in. I took the picture a while ago (last December) but recently came across it again while going through my camera roll, and I thought I’d share it. I have to say, I love high contrast black and white photos. I should take/edit more pictures like this.

The Tenderloin

In all my life living in the borough of the Bronx in the “biggest, baddest” city of them all—I’ve never seen such an impoverished area as the Tenderloin here in San Francisco.

On our way to SoMA from Nob Hill, Louie and I walked the path provided to us by Google Maps without thinking too much about what neighborhood we were walking through. It didn’t take long to notice it was Tenderloin.

I’ve never seen so many homeless & crazy people concentrated into one, smelly neighborhood like that before. Not even the South Bronx is that bad, and it makes Harlem look like Upper West in comparison. I was anxious the entire time we were walking through it. I’ve never felt that uncomfortable in a city before.

Needless to say, I will be staying as far away from this neighborhood as possible from now on. It’s just weird that it’s situated right in the middle of all the nice parts of SF—SoMA, Union Square, Financial District, Nob Hill, etc.
