Central Market CBD May 2011 report

this is one of the most extensive reports yet by the Central Market CBD. Hundreds of incidents recorded. Everything from illegal trash dumping, including by two SRO’s near 6th and Minna, drugs, drunkenness, discarded needles, grafitti, crime incidents, including Passion Cafe, now described as a break in by five people who climbed in through the roof skylight to get the big screen TV and one of them came back to get rid of evidence and that’s when owner Steve Barton was attacked. The Mobile Police Command unit is described as being on 6th Street because of the Pow Wow tourist convention (as opposed to any crimes that actually happened on 6th)

Anyway, congrats to the Central Market CBD on this May 2011 report. It’s a long one and a big read and the original PDF is here and here. These community guides are out there all day long around the Mid Market area so they see quite a bit, and document it, with cameras

there are two reports. One for the Central market CBD and one for 6th Street. The both work for the CBD with the Central Market guides in brown shirts and the 6th street guides in blue shirts. They often cross paths and work together on the street

Passion Cafe selling, Anu bar closed, Zendesk moves in

Passion Cafe near 6th and Market is selling after all, despite denials from their own staff. The confusion was the result of being delisted at Urban Realty and the initial ‘available’ sign being taken down. Now there’s a new sign and a new new website. Photo from SF Citizen and more history about this with links here

Across the street, also near 6th and Market, and hardly noticed, Anu Bar has closed and like Passion Cafe, is also for lease

However, at the corner of 6th and Market, the first large tech company, Zendesk is moving in. Zendesk CEO Mikkel Svane describes 6th and Market as colorful

6th and market is indeed “colorful”. Purple for drugs, red for assault, blue for robbery and weapons and theft, etc

Meanwhile and little known is the brand new trees planted by the Friends of the Urban Forest over the weekend on Stevenson between 6th and 7th

These trees help ‘reduce stress’ and could actually make crackheads and criminals more docile!

‘for sale’ sign removed from Passion Cafe

new trees being installed on Stevenson

these are the markings and cuttings on the sidewalk for new trees on Stevenson alley in the Mid market area of San Francisco. Because crackheads need shade, and cover, and all the good things in life

Passion Cafe on 6th street not closing

The for sale sign is expected to be taken down shortly and the employees of Passion Cafe would like everyone to know they are staying open. It could be due to the huge support from the community, after some recent incidents and not sure yet about exactly why this change of plans, but Passion Cafe is definitely staying open

In other words, it appears Steve Barton has decided to stick it out!

6th and Mission #1 top rated

we’re # 1, we’re # 1, gooooo, 6th Street

cheerleader

Crime in San Francisco peaks at midnight, whereas the safest time is 5 a.m. Assault and theft are the most common crimes in the city. South of Market, the Tenderloin, the Mission and Civic Center are the most dangerous neighborhoods.

And the city’s most crime-ridden intersection? No surprise here. It’s Sixth and Mission.

We’d like to thank the Department of Human Services, Trent Rohr, Randy Shaw, The Patel SRO landlord mafia, The Mayors Office, and the Board of Supervisors for a long term concerted effort to make 6th Street # 1!

police action on Stevenson

This happened yesterday and somebody was arrested. It look s like it might have been a robbery that started near 6th and stevenson and then chased down Stevenson toward 7th. The video shows the thief running down Stevenson carrying a white box being chased by somebody and then the police show up in seconds. There is a small boom sound in the video just before the chase, could have been related (car window smashed maybe)

the sequence starts at 1 minute in this 7 minute video


Watch live video from 6th and Stevenson, San Francisco on Justin.tv

and then a few second later

mobile police unit still there on 6th Street

it’s the 2nd week now

It’s not there all the time, and now it’s mobile unit 3, but all accounts say it’s made 6th street much more civil lately, even if it is just for show. Special thanks to LiveSoma and SF Citizen for helping 6th street and getting more results than 10 government agencies in 10 years!

Passion Cafe owner attacked

I could not see what happened and I don’t know what happened. Could have been attempted robbery or assault but the owner of Passion Cafe isn’t looking too happy this morning..,…However they did catch the guy and held him down until police arrived. This is on Stevenson between 6th and 7th. Passion Cafe is refusing comment and can’t talk about it right now

update, Spotcrime just listed an assault and battery on Stevenson at 8:15am, May 6, 2001 link. This is probably it, an assault and battery. Also thanks to SF Citizen and the unnamed people who got involved and held the attacker down. Also thanks a bunch to LiveSoma for mentioning it

from the Chronicle

A man shot and killed in a South of Market alley was identified today as 23-year-old Joshua McClain of Richmond.

McClain was shot numerous times on Jessie Street between Fifth and Sixth streets at about 2 a.m. Sunday, police said. A 26-year-old man was wounded but was expected to survive.

The gunman fled.

McClain was driven from the scene in a private vehicle to Third and Mariposa streets, where UCSF police officers found the car and called an ambulance. McClain was pronounced dead at San Francisco General Hospital.

The shooting actually took place in the parking lot directly across the street from Club 6 at the corner of Jessie and 6th. There was also an unrelated stabbing at the same corner 14 hours later
