The TL Has NIMBYs Too

New, 10 comments

Tenderloin neighborhood activists are unhappy about all the social services entering their corner of the city. Like the soup kitchen on Turk Street started by a bunch of Chicago nuns who didn't bother alerting anyone first about their acts of kindness. Actually, say residents, such charitable outlets draw drug dealers and peddlers who like to do their thing along soup-kitchen lines. "We feel that we're overwhelmed with these programs. They should be scattered among the city, because they are a magnet to problems we have here in the neighborhood." [Snitch]
