Spring is loitering on the cornerYou know good weather is around the corning when the boyz start hanging around the corner you prayed they had abandoned. Well, it's better than the bad old days when they'd hang on the corner in bad weather, day and night. So they started hanging out Wednesday, and they've brought on new staff. There is one guy I recognize from days past, but the other guys? Ranges from 'not sure' to 'he's new'.
With vigilance, hopefully, it will prove to be an unprofitable corner. Problem is that we are a handful of blocks from heroin central, over by where the Truxton Circle used to be. But so far, during the hour or so I was watching them, and really didn't see any cars stop. I wasn't the only one watching, a few others thought it was nice enough to sit on their stoops, or fiddle in the yard. Mix that in with the odd dog walker, joggers and strollers, I don't see how that's an attractive corner for a drug buy.
Also I want to thank the 5D cops who showed up and made several passes by the corner, and ventured into the alley. Of course by then the boyz had wandered off, but it was good they showed up anyway.
Unrelated Announcement- Blogger issues. Blogger is going to discontinuing a service I use so I'll need to migrate my blogs and I'm not sure what's that going to look like. So blogging may be spotty towards the end of the month.
