oh.my.lord.
i had mentioned this to someone last week. i seriously think downtown is getting more sketchy and scary by the day. i live in a friendly neighbourhood, but im starting to feel nervous walking by myself after dark. in the last week, this is what has been going on:
-people shooting up in the alley my window looks into
-homeless people have become so fucking agressive, they are at the point of harassment looking for some change
-a fist fight outside the KFC between 2 girls
-a man ran me over with his bike today
-the MCdonald's at yonge and wellesley is off limits after supper. there some freaky ass people in their. eatting there consists of watching your back, and not making eye contact

this thread reminds me of similar thoughts i had about montreal after a trip up to la belle ville in february...we were staying along rene levesque in a pretty decent hotel, but wandered up to the burger king (i wasn't eating there, just along for the ride) at the corner of st laurent & st catherines one evening...not a fun trip out...also even walking along st catherines/st laurent/st denis the whole city seemed to be on one big sketch trip...i even said to quite a few people that montreal seemed to be pretty worn down...possibly as a result of so many years of separatist threats, & the recent downturn in the tech economy which had helped montreal revitalize itself...or it could have been february...

but you're right about toronto...walking along queen early sunday morning back to my car, my friend & i commented on the general sketchiness of the queen & spadina intersection...the price of living in a big city?? the visible signs of the common sense revolution?? or just the overall state of the economy at this point in time??

I lived in that hood for a while (Yonge and StJoseph) and its just plain sketchy. If its gotten worse in the last little while don't worry it actually improves normally as the weather gets better. There's some nicer places though then the mcdicks to chill in.

I find these tactics work best with me.
I like the abuse. It makes me want to help.

My most intense homeless encounter was in Guelph at the MacDonell/Wyndam intersection.

I was just cruising back to my car when some really tall bum said "Hey fag, how about you fucking die?" To which I replied "Excuse me?"

The last thing I heard from him was "Yeah and fuck off until you do."

My parking garage, just past Church and Wellesley, there was always fresh condoms every morning and once in a while, if I was lucky, I could find a needle or two. There was a seat behind the place where the crack dealers would sell... and smoke... well.. crack.

The one day I pulled up and they saw me and sorta collected their shit together and made to leave, but I said, "Guys, I don't care what you're smokin. Just dont sell it on my car." They sat down again.

Brett and his dog Jasmine are the guys sitting at the convenience store. Ross and I would hang out with them when our weekdays got bored. If Brett is still reading Ross' copy of "1984" then I will LOL.

One time driving home, at Jarvis and Gould, a bum on his bike biked up to my car window, banged on it, and then demanded a smoke. When I declined, he reached in my car. I almost drove his arm off.

Anywaysa

Really though, the only time I felt nervous was when I would leave the liquor store on Yonge and Wellesley and it was already dark out and I had to walk home with liquor bags. And pass by the bums with remarkably clean breath who weren't passed out yet.

These fit together somehow... I just don't know how...
