This also. One time I did wait on Market St. close to the Tenderloin for the bus. It was a little sketchy but even what I did see was people minding their own business. I didn't feel any danger there, even if it's not always exactly comfortable to witness. I work in Times Square, so I am conditioned to seeing less fortunate, sometimes people hoping for donations, etc. It's just the way it is, as you say.I won't pretend that there isn't
However, I've rarely felt like there was any kind of danger, and I've seen things as extreme as someone heating drugs on a spoon. It's also kind of hard for people from somewhere else to understand, but this is an extremely high demand area where rents are sky high even with these issues of homelessness and drug use.
I remember walking outside of Disneyland and seeing various vagrants hanging out in front of liquor stores and bus shelters. It's just kind of the way it is.
