Sunday's Chronicle included an article by James Temple about how San Francisco is becoming "an enclave of the rich" because low- and middle-class residents are leaving. Why? It's not really breaking news. Housing costs.
"Since 2002, the median price for all San Francisco home types has risen 113.5 percent to $790,000."
"A San Francisco household requires an annual income of $196,878 to afford a median-priced home in the city."
"The average for all apartment types stood at $2,326 in the first quarter."
Last we checked, there were 665 comments on the article online.
