Life Fail Vancouver Downtown East Side Hastings Street Area and Pigeon Park


 

Life Fail Vancouver Downtown East Side Hastings Street area and Pigeon Park – Downtown Downtown East Side Vancouver Hastings and Main area. Butch walks through the Hastings Street and Main Street area of Vancouver’s lower East Side on Sunday afternoon 20 June, 2010. The locals have taken to selling goods on the street “en masse” on Sundays to avoid being ticketed. The poor of this area are constantly ticked for infractions like J-walking and street peddling but some are trying to provide some small means to earn money by having street sales on Sunday afternoons. Butch is a big boy and not afraid of being beaten up for taking photos but did encounter a lot of verbal abuse for using a camera. Vancouver is attempting to deal with helping its poor and social fringe population lately because it is getting out of hand but spending taxpayers money on the poor is not a high priority. The area is home to Vancouver’s poorest people and has many rooming houses that also attract the drug addicted and mentally ill. Video by David Silvercloud (Butch). Camera: Samsung WB500 on an Xshot monopod.

    i lived on main and hastings at the Balmoral hotel. fcked up place, everyone had an addiciton, it was filthy and infested. Violence and? death were always near…it was dangerous and seedy, but this neighborhood also has a strong sense of freedom and of community. I miss it sometimes. The people there always seemed more real to me; truer to themselves and each other. There is a real honesty in desperate poverty that the well-to-do may find uncomfortable. The masks come off down there.

    I don’t really follow your point about Hollywood and Vegas, especially considering that both of those places are absolutely riddled with misery. And while I agree with you about mental illness, the truth is that a very large percentage of drug addicts have mental illnesses, or come from very traumatic backgrounds. And many drug addicts get hooked when they are too young to know any better. I have sympathy for both addicts and the mentally ill. There is no? reason to choose between the two groups.

  • ddjovic says:

    “. . .It’s a trap like no other.”
    For many it obviously is but,
    What about all of them who swear by their drug as everyone in the Entertainment biz, it is said “The Show Must? go On” also, to every casino world wide, “When your Up your Up” they say and i have never heard anyone ever say”Hey, that guy that keeps winning those hands, has a serious problem” ever?
    Its only Failure that crash and cry, naturally.
    I’m concerned about the 25% that never had a chance, mental illness, that is truly sad !

  • FindingAnatta says:

    You’d be surprised how many of the addicts there come from backgrounds of good fortune, but drugs absolutely tear them away from it all. I agree that there are issues that lead most people to addiction, either psychological, abuse, etc… but the drugs make their lives? a hundred times worse, only because in the very beginning of use, they make their lives seem better. It’s a trap like no other.
