Yea Bastard, the current management is great. They don't allow prostitution, drug use or voyeuristic defecation. They make people go outside to do those things, where the tourists can see. While I understand that elderly homeless men need a place to do it doggy-style and poop on the sidewalk, I don't think that stretch of Courtland is it. While the half dozen or so well dressed young men that are always present on said block with large amounts of cash in hand are certainly there to offer jobs to those in need, I'm not sure thats the best place for them either.
In other words- I sat at the light at Courtland and Pine at about 8:30 last Monday night and saw a guy sh*tting on the sidewalk, two dudes f*cking and uncountable hand to hand crack transactions. Sure there's lots of people to blame, but if the shelter wasn't there, I guarantee I wouldn't have had to witness these wonderful acts.
