"Not a place for the family..."

And certainly no where to take a date. This is one of the worst streets in the city, and one of the most well known for drug addicts and prostitutes. There are some decent businesses, but this is definitely not a place to be at night if you're not familiar with the area, and I'd certainly not take children there. The bad part of town.
