Skid Row

Towering skyscrapers in the backdrop of this area serve as a foil to this dilapidated and blighted area. The homeless population here reaches into the 5,000s, and the city has given up keeping the area clean or trying to clear it of the tents, boxes, and shopping carts belonging to the homeless, as it seems to be a losing battle. Entire encampments take up the sidewalks here and there; those who do have businesses or homes in the area are not much better off.
