Van Ness teljeson ok, de a Tenderloin a drugdealerek es nem sok joszandeku emberek kornyeke. Nappal ok, de sotetedes utan nem. Ezt irtak rola a Chronicleban, ez jol osszefoglalja:
The Tenderloin is a historic place full of preserved hotels from the early 20th century, some of which have been renovated into boutique tourist hotels and others into supportive housing. Squalid conditions, homelessness, crime, drug sales, prostitution, liquor stores (over 60), and strip clubs give the area a seedy reputation. However, these conditions have also kept rents in this area more affordable to low-income and working-class families in a city that is among the priciest in the country. The With some of San Francisco’s most prestigious real estate only a few blocks to the north, and the Financial District’s high towers, a major retail area, and hotels just to the east, the Tenderloin often surprises tourists to the city.
