So I'm getting gas at a gas station near downtown and I see walking by what I suspect was a good old fashioned DC hooker; thigh-high boots, jiggly booty meat hanging out all over the place, snarky attitude when she caught me staring at her (Something like "It cost to look"). I quietly got my gas and went on my way, but it got me reminiscing about how crazy it was when I first I got to DC in the early 90s, where you'd see them all the time around Vermont Ave, parts of Ga. Avenue and NY Ave, 14th street...and 5th and K Street was a nightly freakshow, like something out of the movies. Googling around, I see someone has captured some of the old 14th Street scene for posterity on YouTube:

DC was wild back then! 14th & K, H, I were all adult movie houses or seedy stores. Hookers were all over Logan and Scott Circle. One year, some DC vice squad members gathered them all up and marched them across the 14th Street Bridge into Va. LOL

Be careful, all of them are not women. I had to wash my eyes out a couple of times for looking at what Ahales thought was a woman.

Mayor Barry said, most of the license plates were from VA.

Ah, man. I miss the old DC.

I remember when hookers would loiter around on the median strip along K Street between 14th and 16th Streets. That section of downtown DC did not have the glitzy occupied office buildings, restaurants and nightclubs that exist today.

Dark, gritty, cheap and more sinful. That was the 14th Street and K Street corridors I recall so fondly. Today, these neighborhoods are playgrounds for the yuppie class with their "trendy" shops and restaurants with sheik Euro-sound names. Blech!

God, you hardly see hookers around anymore. When I first came to Logan in 2004, you'd still see some around 14th Street--particularly near Thomas Circle, near the CVS and the Washington Plaza hotel. Not so much now. Either they've been completely displaced, or they're much more nuanced about the way they ply their trade.

Those really were the days. It's so hard to find a good, cheap hooker in DC anymore, and to think they used to be here in abundance. I also can't believe the open air drug market is gone! And the warring crews? Pfftthh, today they're just shadows of their former selves--heck, they hardly even kill people anymore. And don't even get me started on how all of the best carjackers come from PG County these days.
