I think it a shame that the people who did not experience Smith Street when it was dangerous to walk - both day and night - have no sympathy for the businesses that started the uptake of this lovely neighborhood. The landlords very happily rented these spaces that no one wanted 10 years ago to businesses willing to take a chance they might succeed. Now that they have made the street quite successful, they are being forced out. It's not a matter of how much rent the space is worth. It should be consideration for the "pioneer" businesses that made Smith Street safe for all of the restaurant and bar business and for you to walk on Smith Street without fear.
