San Francisco’s Tenderloin District has seen many changes over the last several decades. First a haven for gambling and prostitution, then a hot spot for music and pornography, to an current mixture of ghetto dynamics and urban revitalization. This research focuses on urban land-use changes in this district using geographic and ethnographic methods.
