Tenderloin Fire Started on Roof of Transitional Housing
In the meantime, 130 people are living at the Red Cross shelter at Folsom and Sixth Streets, while some of the other former wards of the prison system are now living with friends. Wherever they are, hopefully it's slightly nicer than the Turk and Taylor corner, one of the Tenderloin's roughest.
A savvy commenter on SFist also dug up this nugget -- the transitional housing complex is also the site of the Compton Riots, a key moment in the LGBT rights movement.
