SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The homeless encampments and drug addicts have become more visible to tourists, at times overshadowing the many landmarks that make San Francisco unique.
Groups that hold their conventions here continue to take notice.
"And it's not just groups but also a lot of individual travelers. We hear a lot from individual travelers that have come here and have had negative experiences on the streets and say they don't want to come back to San Francisco, said Joe D'Alessandro, President and CEO of the San Francisco Travel Association.

(especially if California state & local governments keep doing this sh... err, stuff.)
If you want to see a San Francisco go spiral-eyed, foam at the mouth, stark raving mad with rage, point to the needles and the pop in the streets and say, “You will get more of whatever you subsidize”,
Gave me a chuckle. You’re spot on.
This is happening also to the Seattle convention business for the same exact reasons. A sh!t hole.
I also avoid the whole Bay Area, and absent a compelling reason, the entire once and former Golden State.
Thought the very same thing.
Ha-ha-ha-ha!!! Serves the idiots right!! MAGA!!!!
Remember Rachel Corrie!!! (Do the math)...SSZ
gee, even people from the Middle Amerika’s Communistic Crime Cesspool (Chi-Town) can’t stand the stench of San Fransicko!
The new city motto: "Make heroin addiction great again!"
SF has been trading on their past reputation for a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time!
Gee, that would really be jumping from the frying pan into the fire for the medical group! “Hey guys, that wasn’t dog doo you just stepped in...”
It is not just conventions. We live about four hours from San Francisco but travel there very infrequently. Which is a shame, it used to be nice, I was even stationed there in the Navy for a bit, lived in Berkeley briefly, then San Jose. But now, I cannot bring my gun for self-defense, the city is unsafe, it is filthy, horrible traffic, and no parking. Sad demise of a once great city.
So they all agree that they are against having streets and sidewalks full of feces and drug paraphernalia.
But while they don’t want the streets full of it, do they have the will to take action against it????
I’m pretty sure that D’Alessandro is Nancy Pelosi’s maiden name. I don’t know if she is related to this fellow.
There are many wealthy Italian-American families in the San Francisco area. Lots of old money.
That was my first thought too lol
Rachel Corrie got flattened by an Israeli bulldozer.
Maybe you mean Kate Steinle.
