Salem Ave's business districts have gone vacant in sections.

Hi all--

I think J.PRICE is talking about the Salem Mall and surrounding area which was pretty well evacuated long before I ever moved here. If you want to hear why, just look at the Dayton Daily News or some other local news outlet every time RTA tries to expand into Beavercreek - just look at the comments section.

All of the money (and business) has moved to Beavercreek - or Washington Township.

Have you been to Dayton, or know much about Dayton proper? It's in really bad shape and talking about the current state of things is hardly being negative.

Excellent point, Hensleya1! How come the 30-something Liberal in me says we need public transport for everyone to go everywhere. And the 50-ish homeowner in me who lives in a nice neighborhood and knows that not everyone who rides in on public transportation will be well-behaved...

Hi Crew Chief--

Just to humor the audience, I dug up some of the posts. Courtesy of esrati who saved some of them.

Salem Mall closed because no whites would go there. An F-16 pilot did and got cold ****** in the eye, now he canít fly, after $1M to teach him how. bring money, donít take the money from us lawabiders!

What ďkilledĒ the Salem mall was declining patronage. This was caused by an infusion of youth related crime, and the perception of lawlessness. As a result, people left. With the Dayton Mall, Bus stops in front of the mall entrances created a bundling of young people, who, like at the SM, acted in a discourteous and disruptive manner. When the bus stops were removed from in front of the mall to where they are now, distributed evenly throughout the Mall area, the rowdy gps. were removed


Years ago my wife & I went to the Salem Mall. We were greeted by a very nice security guard who in the nicest way possible told us to leave as it wasnít safe for two nice white folks to be in the mall. When questioned why, he said the black gangs were beating on people, especially whites. BUSING was the demise of the Salem Mall. Same started to happen to the Dayton Mall till they moved the stops. RTA offers project mobility for those who canít make the walk from the stop. Leave it where it is!

Thats the problem w the Dayton Mallall the bus stops that bring in crime. Sorry, just open your eyes its a fact not an opinion. Of these 18 churches I wonder how many have a 50/50 mix of attenders? Most who ride the bus to the DM are not for the sake of a JOB. Its to shop or in some cases to steal or just plain cause trouble. Just listen to all the language of some around the bus stop, its F this and F that. Go help the economy and buy a car, pay for your own gas, then if its important u will go

We do not want to see what happened to the Salem Mall happen to the Fairfield and Dayton Malls. Busing in all sorts of people destroyed the security people felt at the Salem Mall.
Just a few of the more coherent ones I was able to assemble, but, well.

Possibly. Lower Salem, from the river to maybe a mile and a half north used to have some well known businesses.
