“Generous and revelatory” KQED Arts
A San Francisco neighborhood undergoes its most dramatic change in 50 years
San Francisco’s Market Street was once the grandest boulevard in America. No stranger to civic celebrations since the 1900s and just minutes from City Hall, the area fell into decline and became home to the city’s poorest population. The neighborhood is currently undergoing its most dramatic change in 50 years as tech companies, their employees, and the restaurants and stores that cater to them confront the realities of a neighborhood that still houses some of the city’s most marginalized residents. 5 Blocks explores the complex questions of income disparity, changing demographics, and the very nature of place.
