"Homeless on Market Street..." People to Avoid Tip by voxel999

People to Avoid, San Francisco: 71 reviews and 28 photos

Homeless on Market Street between Van Ness to 3rd street and the Tenderloin after dark. Generally they are safe and only beg or play outdoor chess(see them at Powell St.), but some are truly drugged out and can get violent. If you don't provoke them - by insulting them, you should be OK. I've seen homeless attack each other at night and with bloodshed, but never tourists or bystanders.

The Tenderloin is not as bad as others make it, it even has nice restaurants and good hotels, just don't look like you have money to lose after dark.
