45 years after San Francisco's Limousine Liberals demolished the Yerba Buena skid row flop houses and pretty much created San Francisco's downtown homeless problem we get Flop House 2.0
"226 6th Street - SOMA - From $1050/month
Basic clean accommodation with shared bathrooms in the heart of SOMA. Surrounded by technology companies like Twitter and Google and with easy access to freeway and Silicon Valley. While the property is in the heart of SOMA and walking distance to Market St, Downtown, resturants and attractions, tenants should be aware that there some blocks around might be edgy."
In 1970 the piss-in-the-washbasin, toilet-down-the-hall flops were 5 bucks a night and strictly SRO, you got a room to yourself.
Now they start at a grand a month and you sleep in a bunk bed and have a cellmate in your 180 square feet.
