A Little Background Info On Prostitution Near 2700 Morgan Ave. N.
Photos By John Hoff
I blew up the background in a couple of recent photos to show the (apparent) prostitution activity taking place under the very noses of residents, most of it coming out of 2700 Morgan Ave. N., a.k.a. "The Salmon House." These photos only show a split second, but if you were standing at the intersection of 27th and Logan you would see the prostitutes walking the street...hailing the cars...getting inside with the customers ("johns") and then, roughly 15 minutes to half an hour later, coming back to the same corner.
Word is, however, housing inspectors will show up TOMORROW at 2700 Morgan Ave. N. to board up the, um, er...what do I call it? One of my readers is asking me not to use a certain word all the time, so I'll just call that place "The House Of The Rising Salmon."
Residents are not getting their hopes up over Monday's planned action. They've heard this so many times before, and yet they keep planting flowers, improving their homes, calling 911 and waiting for a victory which is actually a victory, not just hopes raised high...only to be dashed as more time, more time, and yet more time is given to the hookers. Meanwhile, three of the houses at 27th and Logan are the homes of very small children who see this prostitution activity DAILY.
Notably, there are only TWO PROBLEM HOUSES in this area. If the problems at those two houses went away, life in this little corner of the neighborhood would be perfect.
