I moved here little over a year ago....live and work downtown. ...the bike paths around Speer and Broadway since the burger king closed has def gotten worse. ..I've seen drug use and sexual conduct around there. ...NOT COOL! I know the homeless have needs, but come on....I've even offered them food and they turned their nose up at me....man was I pissed.

I just think natives need to complain less. I'm not from here either, but I love it. All the friends that I have that are natives are awesome and have shown me the great parts of Denver. Not just LoDo, but the real Denver where the natives seem to be hiding out. All I read from comments on these stories are natives that just hate on transplants. I have yet to meet an asshole while I'm out and about and I've been going out quite often in the year that I've lived here. If natives are bothered by me then they're not acting like it to my face.

That's what happens when new development downtown continues to push the homeless outward. Nothing against the new development, as growth is a good sign for the economy, but there's always a side-effect.

That whole stretch from Confluence Park to just past Bannock smells like urine. I just don't remember it being like that until this summer. Coming from Atlanta, I just have to say it is a shame that Denver has let itself go.

I second this. I live off Logan 2 blocks from the creek and work off Lincoln, so I see that when I walk to and from work.

I think the biggest change is how many people keep moving here year after year.  It's getting quite populated now. Traffic has increased drastically as a result. Denver used to be a chill little town when it was mainly natives but now it's starting to feel like a big city with a bunch of assholes running around everywhere. It's still a great city but in about 10 years it could be totally ruined.

Denver has really changed over the last 8 years since I've moved here. I wouldn't say always for the best either. I have to say it was nice to see Denver Police actually out cleaning up the drug dealers and heroin junkies off the Cherry Creek bike path yestetday. That area has just become a homeless cesspool.
