Not to disagree with Ted's and Jason's intentions. They are benign. However, as Capitalist and Statius indicate there has to be a reason for people to live or visit downtown. That reason is found in the amenities present. Also there is a reason why the attractive venues don't come, the area looks decrepit and the people look disinvitational. So, bold Giuliani-like action is needed to restablish a sense of attractiveness....demolish the eyesores and migrate the social agencies out of the core. Bold actions that will insult some and anger others but will be good for the city core in the long run...then or concomitantly, look after appropriate green space and traffic isssues. As I said initially, it IS a package deal.
