"Puzzled" Areas to Avoid Tip by markangloswede

Areas to Avoid, San Francisco: 96 reviews and 24 photos

I have recently booked a trip to go to NYC then onto San fran for 10 days. Having just read all these stories i am a little sceptical.
I do realise that every major city has its problems ( coming from London i know to well :) ).
Reading about all the no go areas and having to avoid a lot of places and if in doubt take a cab, walk fast, dont make eye contact. !!!!!!!!!.

This has myself and my girlfriend particularly worried even before we set foot on the lovely San Fran !!!.

Can anyone say anything positive about it ???

I say that last bit in Jest but you do know where i am coming from i hope ???

Thanks in advance.
