Most(?) large cities have an area like that. For instance, despite
being a "liberal" city Portland Oregon has such an area. (Maybe the
fact it's liberal might explain it to some but I would have expected
their politics would have had them trying to do something about it.

It's not just city streets, I was quite surprised, traveling Amtrak
down the east side of the San Francisco bay area, how many shacks
existed along the tracks in areas where the tracks had been lifted. I
might have been less surprised if it was around Oakland but it went on
down all the way to San Jose through both "rich and poor" areas.

Biggest drug problem in America comes from prescription opiates and it's
growing over here.
