The Tenderloin, The T.L., The 'Loin

If you are looking to get in a fight, stabbed, mugged, shot, raped, killed, crack, pot, San Francisco's Tenderloin District can deliver. This is a shot of crackheads in a board meeting across from the Tenderloin Grocery on Turk and Fifth.

Ching-Ching and Hunter are two dangerous folks. I was hesitant about taking their pictures. "C" summed up their occupations as "Killa-Hustla-Pimps." I believe them. They never mentioned what neighborhood they came from but all the bad dudes show up in the T.L. at some point. They admitted that there are worst neighborhoods but none more infamous.

[The Tenderloin is a dangerous place to have a camera. So don't try it.]
