Gentrification Tour: Mission District, San Francisco

Gentrification Tour: Mission District, San Francisco

8/15/2016

I met up with some AmeriCorps colleagues who work in Community Development in San Francisco. Stephen works in the Mission Disctrict and Omar works in Chinatown. We grabbed some tacos at a neighborhood bar and went for a short tour. In the beginning of the tour, Stephen tells me to take notice of which apartments have curtains and which ones have blinds...

In no way is this tour an attempt to demonize the development that is occurring in the mission. But rather observe and explore this phenomenon and the stark differences  in landscape from one block to another.
