HoustonIsHome Posted June 22, 2015 Share Posted June 22, 2015 I think it's the second. People drift towards the services. You would not find a congregation of homeless in Cypress because transportation services are poor, the charities ate far away and the density of people walking by to ask for some change is few and far in between. Yes those blocks are rather tough, there are prostitutes and teenage runaways in addition to the homeless that frequent that area. But you find that in most big cities. I don't think we have more than the average big city, it's just that ours are concentrated at various stops along the red line. It will be interesting to see if the density picks up along spots on the green or purple lines, if they will find new stomping grounds. Main has long been popular for the homeless, bit I do admit it does seem worse. Those recently sprung from jail are released at the greyhound station and some just stick around. The charities in that area make it hard to leave. I used to catch a bus at a busstop on Fannin and gray near that McDonald's. Charities would feed the homeless right there under pierce elevated and Fannin and man, it was like feeding pigeons. Anyway, I am not bothered by them. I usually see them approach and right before they open their mouth I ask them if they can spare five bucks. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
