San Francisco CA: Homeless Spreads From City To Airport PDF Print E-mail


If travels take you to busy SFO, you’ll encounter many people there who have no other place to go. They encamp both outside and within the terminal, adding to crowding, confusion and lack of cleanliness.

San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities in the US, with high rentals ever rising due to inflation and greedy real estate owners. Many homeless are jobless, mentally ill, addicted and otherwise forced into the streets, and now at the airport.

When encountering beggars, instead of a hand-out, you can better help by giving to agencies equipped to deal with the problem, including the Red Cross and Salvation Army. www.ktvu.com/homeless/increasing-presence-of-homeless-people-seeking-shelter-at-sfo-airport

 
New York NY: Attractive Airbnb Bargains In Mid-Manhattan PDF Print E-mail


Just a few years ago, Airbnb rentals were confined in private homes, and few senior travelers knew or cared about them. We preferred the usual hotel stays, even as prices continued to rise.

For example, in just a decade or two, a hotel room in mid-Manhattan went from $50 a night to $500 in 2019. And with oil companies, airlines and other money-grabbers feeding national inflation, expensive hotel costs are likely to continue climbing higher.

In recent online ads, Airbnb offers centrally located Manhattan accommodations, including Rockefeller Center, for as little as $50 a night. For your next trip to the Big Apple to see the latest shows, shop on Fifth Avenue and dine at the best restaurants, consider an Airbnb within walking distance of it all.
