Talk:San Francisco/Tenderloin

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

We're still trying to figure out how to handle really big cities like San Francisco (see Wikitravel talk:Large city article template for details). One option is dividing the cities into districts, making sub-articles for each district, and listing the important travel stuff for that district, in the same way we would do for a small city. I think this just might work -- Shannon's done a great job on San Francisco/Tenderloin. -- Evan 08:11, 18 Oct 2003 (PDT)


Thanks for leaving Original Joe's for me to do, Shan! -- Evan 18:29, 27 Oct 2003 (PST)


The "hazard pay" name origin sounds really, really fishy. I always figured that the name "Tenderloin" came from the state of prostitutes' crotches after a busy night. -- Evan 19:43, 27 Oct 2003 (PST)

"Hazard Pay" is total BS - I rewrote this whole section. --65.192.41.10 22:32, 20 November 2006 (EST)


You know, if we can get like 6 more articles like this for San Francisco districts, we'll have a pretty good travel booklet for The City. -- Evan 17:49, 31 Oct 2003 (PST)


Anything North of Geary is not in the Tenderloin. According to the city, its police districts and the people that live around there (like myself), the Tenderloin stops at Geary. Nob Hill is the designation by the city. However, they have begun to call it NoMa (North of Market). Locals call it one of many names, depanding on the actual location...: Tenderloin Heights (just a joke), Lower Nob Hill (mostly realtors), Polk Gulch (if near Polk), the Theater District (if near Powell), Union Square (if near Powell), Downtown (generically) and most popularly and commonly, the TenderNob. If you include it in another, already existing article, put it in Nob Hill. If not, create a new one.
