It’s the densest neighborhood in San Francisco – home to roughly 30,000 people. That’s about 750 people per square block, and many are low-income immigrants and families living in tall apartment buildings, homeless shelters, or single room occupancy hotels. Some – with nowhere else to go – live right on the street.</p> Mon, 02 Apr 2012 19:00:00 +0000 Ali Budner 8245 at http://kalw.org Trees take root in the Tenderloin
