    Thursday Nov 8 | Curbed

    On a Tuesday afternoon in August, near the Civic Center BART Station entrance, a woman with her pants and underwear down around her ankles danced outside the Orpheum Theatre as a trio of people-two men in business attire, one woman sporting athleisure-looked on and laughed, shooting footage on their phones from a safe distance across the street. This soulless act is a metaphor for what Mid-Market, which stretches from Fifth Street to Van Ness between Mission and Market, has become: a nascent quasi-neighborhood where moneyed worker drones mingle with some of San Francisco's most at-risk residents.
