Time is running out for the Chinese garment companies to vacate 1019 Market. These photos are from a few days ago. While much attention has been paid to other areas of Mid Market, this is almost completely ignored

More Tenderloin Housing Clinic residents doing and distributing crack in the corrupt Twitterloin


That’s Karen Martinez. She lives at 34 6th Street #617 (Seneca hotel) around the corner and is has been housed at one of Randy Shaw’s buildings for years. She is not homeless and hasn’t been for a long time. Both Randy Shaw and the Chronicle perpetuate the myth that simply housing these people will ‘get them off the streets’ when the exact opposite is true. They are in fact, on the streets much longer now as a result of being housed

update > This is a screen shot of Karen on Anthony Bourdain – Parts Unknown, Season 6, episode 4 (Bay Area 2015)

This is the same Karen inside the building and she wants her crack pipe




this is all courtesy of Randy Shaw who runs this highest crime building in Mid Market and is the same Randy Shaw who has helped to push the Mid Market tax break for Twitter and tech companies

Mid Market’s highest crime building

The building with the most police, fire, and ambulance calls in Mid Market, San Francisco, is the Seneca Hotel at 34 6th street. This is a Housing First building run by Tenderloin Housing Clinic in San Francisco
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
