San Francisco Neighborhoods • Tenderloin
The Tenderloin is a dense residential, retail and nightlife neighborhood in downtown San Francisco. While it may have a rich history and a diverse and artistic community, there is significant poverty, homelessness, prostitution, and crime. It is known for its immigrant populations, ethnic restaurants, bars and clubs, alternative arts scene, large homeless population, public transit and close proximity to Union Square, the Financial District(pics), and Civic Center(pics). The Tenderloin is a historic place full of preserved hotels from the early 20th century, some of which have been renovated into boutique tourist hotels and others into supportive housing. With some of San Francisco's most prestigious real estate only a few blocks to the north, the nearby office towers of the Financial District and the upscale retailers and hoteliers of Union Square located immediately to the east, the Tenderloin often surprises tourists to the city.
