Gottingen Street

So am I the only one who has noticed that over the past few months Gottingen Street has become wose. Maybe its the summer weather that brings all the crazies out but wow. I have lived in Vancouver and have seen East Hastings in the day and the night.

I have lived in Vancouver and have seen East Hastings in the day and the night. Being a small town girl up until that point my eyes were forced open and I witnessed things I would never have imagined. Homelessness, drug addiction,and prostitution are a common occurence.

I was delighted to get home after my years away to a safer place where although we had homelessness, drugs and prostitutes they seemed to be tucked away and weren't so visible.

Working shifts I find myself on the way home or to work early in the mornings and I often take Gottingen St to avoid traffic. I am saddend to see that we are catching up to bigger cities in all three of the above mentioned subjects.
