Sadly -- there's no perfect solution, and especially not one the direct neighborhood can solve without a citywide, state, or national approach. I'm just tired of hearing about all the crime in Kensington on the news each night, and the best way for the community to disrupt that crime or drug problem is by revitalization and making the area less appealing for drug suppliers. That said, it's no solution to the epidemic but it does help Kensington, at least.
