I have to say that I am continually surprised at the blatant prostitution on South 15th Street from Federal to Reed Streets.
Every day when I drive to work, there's at least 2-3 working girls at Federal to Wharton, the pimp-types sitting on the corner of 15th and Manton, providing a home base.
Just this morning, 15 minutes ago, a white cargo van stopped on 15th, right in front of me, a skinny crack-ho walked up to the car, directed him to pull up at the corner of Wharton, and got in as I drove by. On Monday I saw a truck stop on 15th and Reed-ish, and one of the regular corner girls got out of the passenger seat and headed back North up 15th.
I see this going on at least 4-5 days a week between 4:30 - 5:30 AM, all year long. I can't help but wonder why nothing is done about it - if it's THAT obvious, where's the cops? Parked around the corner with one of the girls?
