What is going on with all the recent uptick in crime in the Jack London Square are? All along 2nd & 3rd streets on Webster is becoming a daily car break in area. Every day there are numerous windows shattered and peoples belongings scattered on the ground.
Lots of very rough looking individuals walking and driving the area streets up to no good. This area is becoming very dangerous and no place to be walking at night by yourself. It's too bad since it's such a very beautiful location along the waterfront.

But it's OAKLAND ! And your mayor is an idiot!
Thought there was hope when "stop and frisk" was suggested.
But your Oakland citizens that that was invading them.
OK then. Get robbed at Gun Point. See how you like that!
This "stop and frisk" worked in NY but Mayor doesn't want it.
So again. enjoy Oakland. Cause no one else does. Just the name "Oakland"means Killing and muggings. as anyone.

Oakland is a very SAD city.
It is really a very dysfunctional city in the bay.
Crime ridden and just completely out of control.

I work in this area unfortunately. Everyday there are homeless people sleeping behind, by the side and in front of the building I work. They leave their trash and droppings behind when they leave. Then try walking down Broadway and not be hassled by people asking for money. Mostly the same ones every day. It is getting hard to keep a positive attitude about coming to work. This is all within a four block area of Jack London Square.

It is long overdue for ongoing volunteer execution for Homeless and Addicts. You find that 4/5 Homeless and Addicts would gladly depart this Earth.

I live in Oakland's Jack London Square and pay $2700 for a one bedroom on the water and it's an area that is NOT SAFE. The whole area has lots of problems and its not getting better. Broken car windows daily and cars stolen on a daily basis. Security around the area are armed but what does that do to the area, it's makes people scared. IT's a very challenging area and an area I rarely feel comfortable walking in even during the day.

Your street level of intelligence shows your child immaturity and prejudice towards a particular race.
You should of stayed in school or at least finished junior high.

Agree with Nick
This guy clearly sounds like he has no clue what he is talking about.
Sad that he is the way he is.

Why is this area still struggling? More empty storefronts and buildings are on the increase. What gives?

I know they have been talking revitalization of Jack London Square for a few years now. Having worked more than 4 years less than three blocks away, and walk regularly around the area, I haven' t seen any real progress.

What a shame the conditions are on a daily basis what with the panhandlers and vagrants camping out overnight. I would not stay here after work or think of coming here even on a weekend.
