I think the thing you are all missing is that the core is a transportation hub for the entire city's poor population. It's not that those people are just living downtown, is also that they can easily access downtown, on buses and bikes.

As Ryan has argued, the concentration of the poor downtown doesn't help, it only damages the city's image. It's not just about the Connaught at this point. It's the fact that having a strong transit system only increases the poor's mobility to live elsewhere and then to spend their days ghettoizing downtown.
