The Tenderloin

Tourists who wander too far afield from the cozy confines of Union Square wonder if they’ve walked into an alternate SF universe. Gentrification is a dirty word in this city, and it hasn’t changed a thing in this gritty neighborhood that is infamous for open-air drug use, prostitution, and crime (some of it major). Single-room occupancy hotels house some of the city’s poorest residents, and far too many more are unhoused and live on the streets.


Tenderloin Neighborhood Vibe

Gritty. There’s no avoiding the truth about this neighborhood: it’s known for its challenges with crime and homelessness. For better or worse, it has resisted the tides of gentrification that have swept through other areas of SF.


Popular Tenderloin Home Styles

The overwhelming majority of the housing in the Tenderloin is contained in apartment buildings and single-room occupancy hotels that house some of the city’s poorest residents.


Getting Around in the Tenderloin

The Civic Center and Powell Street BART and Muni stations provide plentiful public transportation options to the neighborhood. Several bus lines run on almost every block in the neighborhood, too.
