Buchanan and Eddy – The “Most Dangerous” Neighborhood in San Francisco

9 Apr

This one day on my way to see the Saint Mary’s Cathedral, I walked into this supposingly low-income housing project at Buahanan and Eddy streets. The streets were clean and it was a sunny day. The “architecture” there was a little dry, solely residential, un-san francisco, but it seemed okay. However I was overwhelmed by the tons of surveillance cameras and warning signs in the neighborhood. It was as if something really bad had happened many times there before. There are many things I can write about these housing projects. But what I found very interesting was that signages and installations alone can psychologically affect how people feel about a space.

    scary! I wonder if all those cameras deter the criminals. Why do you say “supposedly low income?

      it was a bit scary! I walked thru the streets very fast when I was there just in case it was shooting season 😛 I said “supposedly low income” simply because I assumed it was but I didnt stay long enough to check it out! I was really all by myself on the streets at around 2pm in the afternoon!
