When my husband and I first moved here to Wilmington 3 years ago I wanted to purchase a house in the downtown historic area. We knew nothing about the area at night. Everyday I thank God we did not buy downtown. Eventhough I love the houses and the history, we opted to move closer to the Mayfaire area. We love to shop downtown, which we do during the day. We eat at the beautiful restaurants, but we are out of there before dark! On the few occasions we do stay a little later (4th of July, Riverfest, Christmas parade etc.)we park in close proximity to the event even if it costs a few $$$ more. My 26 year old son was ambushed and beaten by 6 marines right on Front St (different story). What I'm trying to say is...you can clean it up, open great stores and eateries but what good is that if people are afraid to be there after dark? I don't have the answers, I just wanted to let the WPD how I feel. I'm not blaming the Police, they can only work with what they have. I'm a big supporter of the police...my oldest son is a Sgt. in another city.
