I always knew that homelessness on the streets of San Francisco and the Bay Area is fairly prevalent but I have recently been going to San Francisco more often and as I walk from Powell to Embarcadero and elsewhere I have never seen so many homeless people in my life. Usually I walk by with no issues but occasionally I feel the need to stay clear for safety. I can only imagine what goes through the minds of tourists as they stroll downtown. I don’t encounter this when I walk through New York. Do you think homelessness is increasing in the Bay Area?
