How A San Francisco Store Owner Is Keeping The Homeless Away From His Doorway

Print comment Post Comments
Aron Ranen, an instructor at DV Workshops in San Francisco, was walking to his home in the Italian section of North Beach the other night when, in the doorway of a local shop, he spotted this:

"It's a trendy, hipster shop that sells Japanese collectible toys, so it's strange that they would do something like this, especially when so many people need a warm doorway to sleep in," says Ranen. "I wondered, Is this the canary in the coal mine? Is it the first sign of the huge chasm between the rich and the poor?

"If you're part of gentrifying a neighborhood, you have to be more careful than that," he adds. "This looks like something you'd use with animals. It looks like something from the end of the world."
