I think one point that is being overlooked is the point made by one the first posters: the state of the schools in that area. Being an old Cathedral boy, I had the luxury of going to both the old school and the new school, having rivals with Scott Park and picking on all the kids coming up the system through the area's Catholic and public elementary schools. With the closing of alot of the schools, the combining of others leading to overcrowding classrooms, we in fact perpetuate this area to be as "bad" as it is. When I went to school, there was no complaints of the one ways, cars zooming etc...because kids were using those streets, families were using those also. My aunt and uncle used to own K&M, the corner of King and Fairleigh...heck I remember the days when Linc used to stop by the store and pick up his Sunday Sun there.
As much as I respect Adrian and my fellow readers of RTH, King St East's problem is more than just one way streets and walkability. That's just my opinion from my experiences growing up around there.
