|Police frisk people entering and exiting El Bronx this afternoon.|
Today, the buildings are still gone, the open air drug market and shooting gallery remain.
This afternoon, police had the street's western entrance blockaded and were searching those who entered and exited. A few meters away, seated on the opposite sidewalk, a half dozen apparently homeless people were smoking bazuco, a cheap form of crack.
The authorities evidently are fine with drug consumption insid El Bronx, but want the vices contained there.
|It can't be any fun looking inside drug addicts' shoes and under their shirts all day long.|
