San Francisco Lives Up to Its Grand Theft Auto-San Andreas Reputation

Posted in thinking about cities by echan on November 19, 2007

Every Sunday morning, including today, the local news sends me greetings of this weekend’s deadly bar brawls and drivebys.  The YTD figure of SF homicide’s reached 90 as of November 11 (this is now at least 92, after this weekend).  I think our Po Po and dashing Mayor Newsom aren’t particularly effective, since our murder rates are now worse than LA and frighteningly worse than NYC, as this graphic from Burbed illustrates:

The disparity between the SF and NY auto theft rates also prove that maybe the GTA people didn’t pick SF as the model for their game solely based on our Bullitt-friendly streets.
