Many share blame for Lexington Market woes [Letter]

March 11, 2014

In reference to "Market malaise" (March 9), I fault the city government, the police department and all mayors past and present for the monstrosity that is World Famous Lexington Market. If reporter Scott Calvert can tell the public the story of the ugliness that prevails in and around this market, why haven't the powers that be taken charge?

I used to ride the subway from Baltimore County to go to the Hippodrome Theater, but the last time I went was so devastating with the drug addicts and dealers, plus harassment of theater goers, I refuse to come back.

In order for that market to become a first class shopping attraction, the city will need the National Guard to get rid of the vice that prevails in and around that market.
