In yesterday’s newsletter, we explored why Montebello, a solidly middle class suburb of Los Angeles, was an unexpected target for Gov. Gavin Newsom’s ire over unaffordable housing.
Today, my colleague Nellie Bowles takes us to a city where the housing landscape has been the target of way more outrage — and it’s about to get worse.
We’re talking about San Francisco. I’ll let her explain why:
Booms usually follow busts. But not in San Francisco today.
A new fleet of huge start-ups — among them Uber, Airbnb, Lyft, Slack and Pinterest — is preparing to go public, and the employees who have patiently waited for their stock options to turn to cash will finally have their day.
The trouble is: The city still hasn’t quite caught its breath from the last boom, which saw clashes between protesters and tech buses. There’s still not enough housing, still jarring inequality on the streets. And now thousands of the newly cash rich are going to be looking to put their stake in the city. Familiar issues are boiling up again.
So I spent a few days talking to local business owners, financial managers, real estate agents, housing activists, tech workers, ice sculptors and bike shops about what they’re expecting from the I.P.O.-palooza this year.
One note: A fair number have read it and told me, “Oh this is why San Francisco is over.” I would push back on that. When I was reporting this story, and as news came that even more of Silicon Valley’s engines are moving north, the realization I kept having is that San Francisco’s financial and cultural power is only beginning.
So what do you think? Is San Francisco beyond saving from the uber-wealthy?

For today’s recommendation, Tejal Rao, California restaurant critic, tells us how to get to Oaxacalifornia:
This week I wrote about a delicious moronga, or blood sausage, that traveled with the Romero family from Oaxaca to Los Angeles in the 1970s. About two years ago, Alfonso Martinez, a former musician, learned to make the sweet, chile-stained moronga from his in-laws.
He now serves it as a side dish at Poncho’s Tlayudas, a terrific pop-up in South Los Angeles where the city’s Oaxacan community gathers to share huge, folded tlayudas filled with beans, cabbage and stringy quesillo.
Every Friday, beginning at about 4, Mr. Martinez sets up behind the offices of the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations, a group run by Odilia Romero. And if you find yourself with a hankering for tlayudas on Sundays, you can find them at Smorgasburg.
