The Main Street Battlefront

I just got back from walking to pick up a movie at Old Bank DVD. On the way back I was standing at the corner of 5th/Main and was shocked to see what a camp the west side of the street has become between 5th and 6th.

It used to be that people lined the street from 4th to 5th, or even 5th to 6th over on the east side of the street. Not any more, apparently. There were probably a good twenty-five people just hanging about up to no good.

I'm curious what caused the shift of people to the front of the LA Garage. Did a previous hangout get busted?

Activating this block is going to be critical if Main is going to become a street people can use and enjoy.
