SF Struggles To Clean Up Streets & Sidewalks Yet Again


After the cost of housing and the homeless crisis, likely the biggest complaint many San Franciscans and would-be San Franciscans have about SF is that our streets and sidewalks are chronically dirty.

The Real Estate Records SF Crushed In 2021–and the Ones We Didn’t
