16th Street Mall is a haven for drugs and pan-handling and makes for a place no one wants to visit. I hate going there now because people yell things and try to start trouble, you see people do drugs in broad daylight on the street, and I can't do anything without being hassled. Why do that if I can shop on the internet?
