So, I had to go into Downtown POS today to sort out some documents and decided to take the opportunity to explore the area a little bit more. A few weeks ago, was my first time EVER walking through the streets of Downtown POS..I wrote a post about it..and the responses I got were rather interesting.. They ranged from “Yeah, Downtown isn’t that bad at all, I can’t believe it took you so long to visit!” to.. “Girl you’re lucky you didn’t get attacked!”
Honestly, I don’t understand the negative perception of Downtown..I mean, ok there are certain areas that are ‘rougher’ than others, but on the whole I think the area is generally safe..and full of historical landmarks! The Government should really considering running a campaign aimed at restoring the area in the minds of the public (or, rather, those people who hold negative perceptions about the area)..I mean, walking through the promenade is so..nice..and peaceful. It’s a shame more people don’t take advantage of it.
In Miami, I used to spend many weekends going to outdoor art/fashion street festivals where local vendors would sell their work. The Brian Lara Promenade would be the perfect venue for such a festival. Don’t you think?
Anywayyy,,until then,..enjoy a few photos I took on my second foray into Downtown.. 😀
What do you think should be done to change the negative perception of Downtown in the minds of (some) people?
