Places such as this are a byproduct of unaffordable housing and unaffordable studios in the bay area. The elites that run everything refuse to build more affordable housing, because they are greedy and they want their property values to rise – and they don’t care if rising property values means a lot of people wind up homeless. Its time we started to develop more housing and infrastructure to meet the needs of future generations. Its either that, or population control . Having more and more kids, more and more immigration , higher and higher housing costs, but not building hardly any new low – income housing – will continue to be a recipe for disaster. SF and Oakland are basically cities with the elite rich living next to the poor – and there is very little middle class- as result of coastal elitist policies.
