If we have something for the Christians and also the Jewish Museum on Independence Mall, I think it is high time we build a Buddhist Museum, Maybe a 2000 foot golden stupa?

No problem. Whether it's next week or next spring, the Friends of the Wanamaker Organ keeps a schedule on its website. That way, you always know when to wander in and hear its dulcet grandeur.

These people are yelling obscenities at tourists? You will see people loitering at some of those locations- not sure what you plan to do about that if they aren't committing criminal acts. I understand you likely don't want to see certain demographics hanging out downtown as it ruins the Disney like vibe- but if they aren't doing anything illegal they are allowed to be present. Sorry.

I think most people are totally cool with people being bums. It's how the bums act that bothers them. Verbal and sometimes physical abuse is the norm for some folks.

To be frank, anyone homeless that is overly loud or aggressive is clearly mentally ill and I have a hard time believing such people don't exist in other american cities.
You've been very lucky and fortunate you haven't had any incidents. I can't say the same - not even close, same goes for all my counterparts. I'd be happy to provide many many detailed stories offline if there is a desire to know - which I think some have their heads in the sand. Hell I think there was even a telemundo reporter that was attacked by city hall on live television not too long ago.
