Pedestrian at Worst: “The top neighborhood for accidents is SoMa”

h/t Curbed San Francisco

“The top neighborhood for accidents is SoMa. Of the 5,846 incidents recorded, 614 happened South of Market. The Mission ranked second with 407, and the Tenderloin third with 376. But since these figures aren’t adjusted for the population or area of the neighborhood they might not necessarily indicate the breadth of the problem.”

Off the top of my head, I know of at least two now-former residents involved in serious accidents that occurred not far from the building.
In one, the tenant was riding their bicycle when they got hit by a bus. The tenant ended up in a wheelchair for months.
The other occurred around the corner when the resident was struck by a white van and killed.

I have “only” been in the Bay Area for 14-years, I have worked in SF for 5+ years, and, without question, I have noticed more and more aggressive drivers over the years.

Be careful, stay safe.

Originally "The Central Hotel", built by Edward Rolkin in 1907, 574 3rd St: Central Apartments used to consist of 440 small rooms and several storefronts across the first floor, including a large saloon and dining room. Currently family-owned and managed, over the past 44-years Central Apartments has been converted to the thriving multi-family apartment community it is today. Couple constant upgrades and renovations with astute attention to detail and CNT is now a bona fide fixture of the SoMa/South Beach area, a multi-family apartment community that features a total of 102 apartments. From our smallest studios to our two studios with storage lofts to our two junior one-bedrooms to our one-bedrooms to our one two-bedroom, all our apartments are wired for high-speed internet and boast updated plumbing lines and electrical fixtures. Combine that with our usual apartment amenities - granite countertops, hardwood floors (entry, living room, bedroom), granite tile floors (kitchen and bathroom), gas stoves, range hoods, sturdy cabinetry, along with the fact that we include all utilities (excluding internet and cable service) with the monthly rental charge? Located three blocks from Giants Stadium, Chase Center right up the way and practically across the street from the lush oasis of South Park, we boast a perfect 100 Transit Score.
