A new property report from Property Shark reveals more than 50 of the US's 100 most expensive zip codes currently in the Bay Area; sheds amazing new light on San Francisco's outrageous wealth differentiation and homeless crisis.
“The Bay Area dominates the overall list. Because of several ties in median sales prices, 125 zip codes actually make up the list of zippers with the 100 most expensive median sales prices.

Last month, San Francisco residents raised plywood barriers in one neighborhood to prevent homeless tent cities from taking over private property.
"In the latest effort to combat the growing homelessness crisis in San Francisco, a city dweller recently blocked a plywood wall with an alley known to be used for drug trafficking and homelessness," reports Fox News.
#Update | The plywood wall was removed, but the anonymous neighbor who placed it said they work at a gate.

Earlier this year, residents installed giant boulders in the city streets to block homeless camps and drug use. The rocks were eventually removed by San Francisco officials.
