Now this is stupid. Maybe I just need to do what generations of Americans do, live on the safe side and complete ignore the crazy amounts of violence on the other side of the city. Then I can take in the amounts of "cool" I'm missing.
There is a murder every god damn day, but the city is cool because there are great restaurants and attractions.
But that's what makes it fun. Knowing at any moment you could walk around the wrong corner and have yourself a situation. Nothing like gettinh shot at to get some adrenaline pumping. Plus, if you're squeezin yourself, you could have an old fashioned western shootout. Yolo
