Some stark data in another 48 hills piece on income and the increase in San Francisco’s very rich population.
In 2005, when the first tech buses were making runs up Van Ness and Valencia, there were approximately 33,400 households in San Francisco whose annual income was less than $10,000. Conversely, there were only 23,300 households in the city whose reported annual income was above $200,000, according to numbers obtained from the U.S. Census’ American Community Survey.
In 2012, the most recent year for which data is available, the rich and the poor changed places. The number of households in San Francisco with a reported annual income above $200,000 exceeded those earning less than $10,000. There are now upwards of 46,200 households raking in above $200,000 a year, while the number of households subsisting below $10,000 has actually declined by approximately 6,200, to about 27,300.

Okay, so did anyone go to the political fundraiser for David Campos at the Armory last night? Anyone get tied up?
Tell me this, which is really bothering me a lot. Why isn’t the video on the Kings of Cricket just cleaning it up in clicks? No, it is not about the Google buses and it is not about crime, but it is such a rich cultural story and says so much about how the Mission is changing in ways that go beyond tech. Argh. Everyone should watch it as it is also about friendship and creating home in a new place.
I hate to send anyone out of the Mission, but this sounds like fun. A bike ride around Alameda looking at chicken coops.
Enjoy the day!
