How is living in San Francisco currently? I moved out last year and wondering if things have gotten much worse? Are they turning around now with the vaccines being widespread? Indoor dining allowed again? What's going on with the tent cities?

I’ve been here through the whole pandemic and im about ready to leave. I was almost burglarized while at home, my neighbors had my car towed even though I wasn’t blocking their driveway…I’m just getting sick of paying so much and getting such little in return. Its just wearing me down at this point and I’ve been here for about 10 years. I’m thinking it’s time for a change for me personally.

I totally hear you LPD! I was getting takeout in the mission, thought for a brief moment ‘huh, life here isn’t as bleak as I remember’ when all of a sudden a random person started smashing windows of cars and trying to smash store windows (ones that weren’t boarded up still). Then took a shit on the sidewalk.

Worse how? Everything's opened back up pretty much. And the herd immunity is real here with the highest vax rates in the country. Also, vibe is way better since everyone who didn't wanna be here finally left. 😜 Unfortunately, yes, homelessness is still a pervasive problem across the West Coast. We're gonna need a massive federal intervention and a realization of our national opiod crisis to relieve that.

The issue USAT is that your DA has been caught red handed letting people go for crimes just so it wouldn’t be reflected in the stats. So when people say crime is going up, when non-conservative people are saying it’s going up, it’s sure as hell going up.

Your DA is an an activist that gaming the system. He’s turning SF into a hell hole.

Vax rates highest around, so that's good. Everything is open and masks not required if you are, but many people are still masked up out of habit/precaution.

Food is still good. Some stuff went out of business over the quarantines, but that hasn't changed the overall landscape.

Weather is still good on the coast, but the entire inland west is getting roasted with a blowtorch more than ever and has a drought problem that's very visually visible. Tbd what that means for non-farmers. Fire prevention seems to be taken more seriously now though, fire season hasn't started too prominently (knock on wood). PG&E got a kick in the pants, and is being more proactive with helicopters checking for extra shady looking power lines pretty regularly.

Homeless tents are everywhere. Like really, it's kind of surreal how many. I've started calling them hoovervilles cause they seem like they'll be historically notable. Hasn't been an actual problem in my life though, just something I drive by. Different cities have been handling it radically differently. SF has been radically handing out $520/mo, while Palo Alto is reactionary NIMBY and has been physically breaking camps and throwing hobos on the pavement for sleeping in the wrong place.

Crime is up. In SF specifically, I suspect much of it is the DA letting just about everyone walk--repeat violent crime offenders making local headlines all the time. SFGate did a data driven story based on police apprehensions saying crime is down, but anecdotally SF cops never show up for anything, so I don't buy it. Major chain stores in SF have started to reduce hours due to shoplifting profitability concerns, which tells me a lot more. Outside SF, uptick in burglaries, including along 24 past the Caldecot tunnel which has historically been immune to spillover from Oakland etc.

New UC Berkeley study says the bay area exodus isn't real, but an easy to believe myth. Still, nicer real estate got cheaper.

SF has always been about accepting the bad with the good. It can be difficult to swallow sometimes when you're paying that much to deal with such a downside. It comes down to if the restaurants, the people, the location, and all of the positives outweigh that, because I don't think the bad is ever really going to go away.

I locked in a very cheap and spacious apartment in a great neighborhood. I wouldn't have been able to afford it if COVID didn't happen. My musician and artist friends who got pushed out last decade are coming back (Bay area native here) Stoked for the future full of people who love the city even with it's difficulties, and maybe soon we will see less of an extreme wealth disparity with less super rich knowledge companies and their workers.
