I was born and raised in San Francisco so I have still how impacted we are from outside source. Sf became very congested about 2/3 years ago and I noitcw with the tech boom it has driven our rent extremely high. Happily for the Western Addition it’s not crowded although it’s real estate had an massive inflation. The area is still nice and has became very diverse. It’s an welcoming area for all people! I love it

Not a good idea to stay out very late. Many kids have broken my car windows, especially right before the holidays! Do not walk alone. Also have pepper spray with you. Never make eye contact with people.
I love this city. It would be nice if there were more affordable universities that had open enrollment before a year. It would also be wonderful if the housing was affordable.

There are many opportunities but there is a great disparity between the classes.

It would be wonderful if the technological influences could combine with that of other groups to find solutions for the homeless crisis. San Francisco paved the way on HIV/AIDS education, treatment, and protection. I see San Francisco as paving the way on homelessness as well.
