The only bad thing in SF is rent control. Without rent control, other bad things will disappear natually.
Don’t be fooled. Clothes hanging problem can disappear with a small donation from everyone in this forum. We can buy a laundromat and provides free drying for Chinatown residents. If free is not good enough, we will charge a negative $5 per drying and give them a free brochure on sanitation effect equivalence between drying machine and the sunshine.
When no one hangs clothes any more, we can develop the laundromat into a shiny new apartment, renting without rent control. It’ll be a very profitable “change the world” cause!
