    5th St between N and O is a complete shitshow. I always walk a few blocks out of my way to avoid this area. I feel sorry for whoever buys the 1 million dollar condos on the corner!

      Huh? I live two blocks away and walk by here frequently…I’ve never seen any problems at all. What are you talking about? (Not trying to argue with you…just genuinely curious.)

        I surmise that Anonymous is referring to the public housing between N and O. I walk/ride through that area all the time, too. No problems. It’s not McClean Gardens but calling a shit show is bit much.

          According to MPD, the stabbing was a domestic dispute. That block of 5th hasn’t always been the best, but I walk it all the time alone and with my kids and it is far from a shitshow.

        people who live in an area always get defensive about stuff like this, but lets face it, our city still could become better.

      I am sorry for you, Mr. Anon. You would feel better in Georgetown with a garage attached to your house or why not try Spring Valley? (stay with your own kind?)
