The building with the most police, fire, and ambulance calls in Mid Market, San Francisco, is the Seneca Hotel at 34 6th street. This was written about once before in the Examiner. The building is run by Tenderloin Housing Clinic and Randy Shaw and is next door to Dotties True Blue Cafe. The Seneca was not always like this. It was much better before 1997 when Alfred Raynal owned it and it was a working persons SRO. In 1997 the building was sold to the Patels and subsequently master leased to Randy Shaw in 1999. The mayhem has been one of the highest in the city ever since 1997. This affects the Mid Market area and this is how to fix it
According to SFPD’s Department of Emergency Management, police have been called to the Henry Hotel 143 times since early November, an average of just more than one call per day. Of seven residential hotels in the area The San Francisco Examiner inquired about, only one other, the Seneca Hotel, was the source of more calls: 287.
What the Examiner was looking at was 911 dispatch records. Below are three months of these records, January-March 2012. There’s a pretty good chance Randy Shaw runs the highest crime building in the entire city of San Francisco. These stats have been posted here at Bluoz twice before here and here
