For purely selfish reasons? F'n great. Mostly. There are still short-term homeless up in there but they're fail whale homeless. The junkies too burned out to get their shit out of the street. The ones who shit on the sidewalk. But they only last a week tops before the cops clean 'em out.

For deeper philosophical reasons? F'n sucks. It was a community in there of living, breathing, thinking, struggling people and holy fuckin' hell they had problems and I wouldn't wanna be them but I mean, I waved to some of 'em. They knew me, I knew them. They were just trying to live their lives. And if you're homeless and addicted to something or hearing voices or whatever, you can do a lot worse than living on the river. And now they're uprooted and alienated and still on the street and still someone else's problem.
