The mission has a gang and drug problem the gangs are seperated buy street and color.You have red and blue red from 22nd towards ceaser chavez and blue back going towards duboce.Then you have the 21st gang that divides the to colors.Some say they were red but not from what ive seen.Their is alot of drug activity and alot of drinking that goes on their on 21st and Bryant.I havent had any problems their and i have lived their for atleast 5 years.In the past few years their seems to be a little prostitution starting to build up you see women standing around every now and then jumping in and out of cars.Word has it that the young kids run the show but ive heard rumors that a guy named d-loc is the one that controls everything.He is a older guy in his late 30s i have seen him around but never meet him.From what i heard from a friend of mine he is a recording artist but i dont know what his recording name is.Neighbors that now him or say they do say he is a real melow guy but looks can be well you know.And the times i have seen him he always has different women with him and alot of times more than a few.When i go to the corner store i never have any problems and they always say hello to the neighbors and the people who walk by.Other than that its pretty calm in that part of the Mission besides the few things i mentioned. ... more

I can’t speak for 20th st and up, but I used to work around 16th and Folsom. While it was not the nicest area, i would not say it was bad. As a woman i can't say i felt very safe at night. There were some homeless hanging around but nothing crazy. However moving North from Folsom to Mission got pretty spotty - walking North felt unsafe even during the day time.

There is a Bart station at 16th and Mission and one of my coworkers told me they saw someone shooting up on the street. I don't know if there is truth to that but the area gives you that not so safe feeling and I have certainly seen people smoking pot on the curb. I'm not against it, but it does say something about what is going on around an area when people think it's cool to light up in broad day light.
