Mapping Gangs and Cupcakes in San Francisco's Mission


San Francisco's Mission district is home to many trendy sweet shops, including Tartine Bakery and the Humphry Slocombe ice cream shop. It's also gang territory, and has seen some gang violence as recently as last week. Thankfully, UC Berkeley undergrad Danya Al-Saleh had the foresight to put the two together on a map. "Next time you bite into your cinnamon horchata cupcake," writes Al-Saleh, "reinterpret your surroundings." Helpfully, she uses cupcakes as a visual aid.
