Re: “The Uptown Apartments Look Nice, But Are Still Mostly Empty

i live here in the uptown and i like it, i actually rent a living room from a friend because he wasn't using it and i wanted a studio, so i can't complain about my personal rent, but overall, the prices are slightly intimidating for the single lower middle class worker. one thing i noticed is that there's nothing going on around here at night time that would keep criminal types away. unless it's a show weekend, the Fox is dark, and there's nothing but dark streets and the occasional car.

i know the economy sucks, but it would be cool to see a coffee shop or a bookstore or something right in front of the complex in those vacant retail areas. maybe something worker owned and city subsidized?
