I believe that the language describing the relationship between the 19th Ward and our college student residents is more reflective of the "youthful vibe" used to describe Monroe Ave than "friction". The 19th is overflowing with youth potential.
I also want to push back on the politically loaded language of "open air drug markets". This is big city language that is being improperly imposed upon our smaller city drug activity. Please do not misconstrue this comment to imply tacit support for drug dealing, particularly as we as a nation grapple with issues of legalization of marijuana juxtaposed against increased use of heroin. No one should get it twisted, the 19th Ward is a good place to live in a great American City
