Nicole Harvey is a free-lance journalist with an unusual subject: she writes about the intersections in San Francisco’s historic Tenderloin neighborhood. Although Harvey writes in prose, she waxes poetically on what she sees, hears, smells and imbibes, offering an unvarnished view of the gritty and reviving community. Harvey’s work appears as part of a series on SF Fist called the “Urbane Studies of the Tenderloin Geographic Society.” All of her pieces are available here
. Readers may not always agree with her, but her perceptions are always worth reading.
