Running the Gauntlet

The walk between my apartment and 125th/Lenox just got a whole lot harder. Awhile back I started thinking of this short walk as the urban version of The Gap Game. The urban version of Gap Game (I still need a name for this) replaces the ubiquitous sales person with the homeless, junkies, crazies, black-market peddlers (cigarettes, music, DVDs, porn, and much, much more) and Black Panthers. Many of these groups overlap to form more challenging foes like the crazy, homeless junkie.

The opening of the new Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 128th and Lenox (scroll to read the link between Sylvia’s and the LDS) has added a new army of opponents in my walk to anywhere from anywhere. This weekend
