South of Market Reviews
I’ve lived in SOMA for about six months. It was great before covid because of the convenience but the streets are not safe anymore. There isn’t any park space and I can’t wait to move.
it's great for right now with my partner - we can walk almost anywhere we want to go, or take public transit or rideshare for a decent price. it is very busy and "downtown" like, which means that there are a lot of cars and traffic, but also that there's lots to do. never quiet! San Francisco is an amazing tiny city to live in, but definitely getting almost prohibitively expensive for anyone that doesn't make a six figure salary. I can't stay here forever, but it's great for now.
In the last 10 years the crimes rate has improved dramatically. Police is patrolling often, in fact there is a new police station built. Homeless people still using street for shelter, this is a big concern of mine. Drug addicts are using injections and needless and leaving them on the sidewalk. This is not safe for little children to walk past from or even see.
