The Mission always gets – it seems, at least – the most attention when it comes to conversations (arguments/fights) about displacement and gentrification. Yet plenty of other SF neighborhoods are experiencing the same problems, dynamics, and outcomes (Excelsior, Crocker Amazon, Bernal Heights, Western Addition, so on and so forth…)
Why is it that the Mission is always the neighborhood or area that get’s the most press. The NY Times article that just landed about this just kind of helps reinforce our point…
What are your thoughts about why the Mission is always a magnet/case-in-point for these arguments in San Francisco? We’d love to hear your viewpoints, we’ll try our best to respond to your thoughts in the next episode of our San Francisco real estate video.
And thanks in advance for keeping the conversation focused on outcomes and solutions, not on blaming or picking fights. This is our San Francisco, and the only way we will solve the challenges we face is by putting aside our differences and working to find common ground. We have more in common than divides us.
