I do hope the pd does drive down that stretch of road "the 100 block of north 8th). people don't just park by the boatramp to walk or bike!

I had a friend years ago who loved on the 700 blk of Ash. (Close to his job and cheap)I didn't even know those streets existed.Those are very over grown and scary places to be.--multigreat typo! living, loving. it is all the same. yes, that is an odd little street 700block of ash. and, no sidewalks for sure! when you walk on the levee you look down into their yards/homes, etc. some of the houses east of 8th, along the north side of the levee, don't smell so good, too.
