Thread jack - that used to be a nice little area

to walk around over the last couple of decades. It looked like the area had turned around. I went there this summer very disappointed-- I will never go back. It did not feel safe to walk around the area even with police patrolling the area.

A pleasant surprise was the new Hilton across the water - a world class hotel with amazing restaurants, bars and artwork. Same developer / owner as the Virginia Beach Hilton on 32nd (?) street. He is also renovating the Old Cavalier at great expense and significant cost overruns - looking forward to seeing that when it is finished. The area around the Norfolk Hilton is getting a great infusion of cash and rebuilding that is decades overdue. Sort of like the area between the corner and the downtown mall.
