Old Dirty Alley

lotsa crazy stuff happens in this Old Dirty Alley — the area around san francisco’s 5th and 6th and mission and howard streets.  upper soma or lower tenderloin?

this is definitely a mature-themed blog.  there are pictures and video of people peein’ and swearin’ and  poopin’ and shootin’ and sexin’ … if those sorts of things offend you … well then leave.

    Just wanted to let you know that I’m a fan. Just discovered your blog and I am gonna be discussing it in the near future on my site. Let me know if you ever see anything crazy, and I’ll help spread the word.

    True embed, true journo. Very nice, and thank you for doing this.

    Wow, good stuff. I thought my particular block in the Mission was hardcore, but you win. You win. Keep filming. Shed light on this. We shouldn’t allow it to happen. This is not class warfare. This is just decency and intervening before people hit the kind of sub rock bottom you are documenting.

    I used to work at the mall on market between 4th and 5th and was totally aware of all the degenerate activity occurring only a couple of blocks away. It always tripped me out how all this occurred in such close proximity to a high pedestrian traffic and tourist frequented area.

    Check out the surveillance video of the guy robbing our office at the Ninth Street IFC–not who anyone expects in this neighborhood:

    Hi – I’m working on a public art and placemaking project in the area bounded by 5th, 6th, Howard, and Mission. I’d love to get your input! Please get in touch if you want to know more.
