I feel for the merchants on Broadway since they seem to have challenges that surpass those on the Avenew or elsewhere in town. The Avenew merchants have to deal with a lot of snatch and grab theft. But on B'way there is the "Birdman" who feels the need to feed the pigeons who then feel the need to excrete. And now, from the Daily Post Police Blotter we read this
1:40 pm - Citizen reports that a homeless person pooped near the business and walked away, Broadway.
That cannot be good for business. Are we approaching the point where it is time to add a JC Decaux public toilet a la EssEff? That is possibly the smartest thing SF has done in the last decade.
