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.
