Port of San Francisco Destroys Mission Bay Homeless Encampment

Anna McCarthy
No more seaside views for this Mission Bay resident.
When SF Weekly reporters saw the Port of San Francisco cracking down on our bay side neighbors, we had to snap some shots of the demolition. This lean-to was so elaborate that tearing it down required more than five workers, multiple large dumpsters, and a backhoe.

One of the Port's workers told SF Weekly that the resident had been escorted from the encampment yesterday and taken to a homeless shelter. "We're just cleaning up what's left," he said. He didn't cite any particular reasoning for the demolition, just that the Port was doing its job. A call to the Port confirmed that they mostly work with the city's Homeless Outreach Team.
