6th Ave Prostitution

Is it just me or are there more and more prostitutes walking up and down 6th around the shopping areas? There needs to be some kind of early response to this before it gets out of hand.

Maybe if business owners and their employees were more aware of this they could keep an eye out and call this sort of thing in. Maybe find the TPD rep for the area and see if he can give the 6th Ave. merchants meeting a report and advice.

This sounds familiar. Doesn't the 6th Ave District have a promotional event called "Tart on the Ave?"

What prostitutes? I live right off of 6th ave and drive between Alder and Sprauge several times a day. I have never noticed a hooker on 6th... even late at night. Although there are lots of drunk kids outside of Masa and Chopstix at 1am. What area of 6th ave are you referring to and how do you know you are seeing hookers?

I am guessing the Highland Hill area. Lots of cheap apartments around it and it has that Aurora Ave. feel.

prostitutes aka drunk chicks stumbling out of chopsticks?

maybe it is metaphysical prostitutes... like a holden caulfield 'phony' thing. like "i'm so sick of all the prostitutes. I wish things were like they used to be"

"Prostitute" could be business speak. Like one 6th Ave clothing business referring to another's cheap prices, "That prostitute down the street sells the same dresses I have in my shop, for 30% less than my prices!"

Notice to anyone shopping for hookers: South Tacoma Way and Puyallup Ave are still the places to be. Nothing else comes close in Pierce County. Any hookers you find on Tacoma Ave are simply in transit from jail back to S.Tacoma Way and/or the roach motels of Puyallup Ave.

Attention johns of Tacoma: don't waste your time on 6th Ave. This appears to be a hoax.

Thanks AP!

Great viral advertisement shtick by chopstix, perhaps just a little transparent...

Prostitutes are like streetcars. Miss one, ya catch the next. 6th Ave don't have neither...

Yikes, viral marketing from Chopstix! All the Ave needs on "ladies night" is even more drunk guys from the Fort looking for women... free or otherwise.

Jake, really? C'mon now, my hood isn't THAT bad. Aurora Ave? That is just low!

I have yet to see a hooker over here. But, maybe now, with all of the new sports bars...

Maybe 297 is just referring to the patrons of that hot new shoe store in the Sixth Ave District. Perhaps he doesn't realize that nice girls (and sometimes boys) like to wear naughty shoes, too.

So Naughty.
