Culture Clash?

Gas station condos, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

This gas station on 14th Street, if memory serves, used to be a super sketchy gas station. It is the type of gas station were you are solicited between walking from your car and paying. I also seem to recall a buddy of mine getting robbed at this gas station in the middle of the day. Well, walking by the other day I happened to notice some super sweet condos practically right across the street. How is that going to work? I just don’t understand how it is possible to have a “luxury” condo right across the street from sketchville no matter how nice the condos are. As has been a theme for a while can someone please explain to me this seeming contradiction?
