Where to war?

Maybe it’s time we come up with a new name for the Mexican War Streets?

Isn’t there some saying about perception being reality or something? Isn’t calling it the War Streets basically saying, “Need a place to do battle? Here ya go!”

I’d like to vote for “The Streets of Peace” or “The Streets of Perpetual Police Presence.” That just RINGS!

    When I was shopping for a house I remember one realtor trying to sell me on the Mexican War street and how the nice little homes we going for only $200k.

    I informed her I wouldn’t pay $200K to live in the hood and hear gun shots nightly.

    I love being right.

    Well, there are shootings in Squirrel Hill on occasion. There are some people leading phat lives out there.

    It’d be nice if they could do something about the Garden Theater, tho.

    … by “out there” I mean the Mexican War Streets. Confusing usage.
