Problems in Slack Plaza are not new

Yesterday the Charleston Daily Mail ran a story quoting Mayor Danny Jones says Spikes might not be enough for downtown park. As this 1984 article in the New York Times shows, problems in Slack Plaza are not a new thing. At that time Mayor Mike Roark installed cameras to help deter vandalism and insure public safety along Slack Plaza and Brawley Walkway (AKA Fife Street).

Yesterday afternoon the city began to take down trees in the park, but it is unclear what the plan is for the space.

Can you really call it a park if there are no trees? And why call it a park if you don't want people to gather anyway? I've never had a problem walking through, but I understand there are plenty who have. There's gotta be a better solution. Certainly one better than taking away trees.

How about changing the name to SLACKER Plaza?
