We fish all over the Newport news area and we don't have any problems on any pier.16th street, the green mile and many more. As long as u can act respectful u won't have anything to even have a care in the world except... when is the next fish gonna bite...dont b so quick to pass judgment. Good luck to all!

I walk my dog there most Saturdays during the summer. I'm white, live in the northampton section of Hampton and have NEVER had any problem. Everyone fishing along the pier has always been extremely nice. So 'another white guy', I did carry my white back down there on many occasions. No problem.

Have you at any case been bullyed or shot at while visiting downtown nn? I say visit because like so many others they disgracefully speak on something before experiencing it for themselves. I have fished and crabbed on the piers of downtown nn, to your surprise I've never experienced heard or saw any crime of any kind on or mere the fishing pier.I'm merely asking you to try before you try.

Hey, I tried to go down there to check it out while the pier was under construction and was met with glaring stares and racist remarks, then this guy yells across the park area asking me for a dollar, wait, pretty much he was TELLING me to give him a dollar. What else am I suppose to think about this area?
Well I'm sorry you was greeted in a disrespectful way.One sour experience doesn't justify not going downtown to fish..We know it's a poverty stricken area but over all there are some very respectful polite citizens down there,because one ill mannered individual told you to give him a dollar doesn't mean he really needs it.. Possibly he was feeling you out trying to see what type of person you are or HE MAY HAVE REALLY NEEDED IT.Nothing wrong with helping a fellow brother or sister..
YOU REALLY SHOULD TRY IT AGAIN
