Good topic. But I find North Pearl St. one sided. By that I mean you can't even buy a dress,
shoes etc. on that strip with the exception of Lodges a great wonderful one-of-a kind store. Is there a beauty salon on Pearl? There is a nice men's shop on State St.

The writer of this letter is downtown during daylight hours, places like Jillians depend on the nightlife to survive.

It's a whole different place after dark, with wild eyed monsters looking to steal from, rob, and rape whitey.

Why as taxpayers we do not feel safe to go into
certain neighborhoods in albany at night. I do not
feel safe to go back into my old neighborhood to
see my childhood home. We support many families
through Social Services but we cannot freely go there. P.S. I do not go to shopping centers at
night....alone...are we losing the battle.

Nice idea, unfortunately, the people who cause the mayhem can't read.
