I've always wondered why people seem to consider half of SoLo to be "downtown." Now I know.
The QCTimes, while covering the water main break, has constantly referred to it as a downtown problem. If I lived over on Boies or Lilly I would be sure that it didn't apply to me. However, when they list the areas affected, it extends from the East Village west to the "West end of Davenport" and up to 10th street. I don't consider Oneida to be downtown, and I absolutely don't consider Ralston to be downtown.
What would it take for Davenport to define its downtown more obviously and publicly?
