Thanks for Exploring North Jackson Ward 

I very much enjoyed the cover story on Jackson Ward ("The Lost Neighborhood, Nov. 8). We all read about the almost daily shootings and violent crime there, but I, like most Richmond residents, have an out-of-sight, out-of-mind attitude.

As more and more downtown development encroaches on this area, we as a city are going to have to solve what has gone wrong there and fix it; otherwise, no one is going to want to go downtown and enjoy any of the new restaurants, shops and development because the area is simply too dangerous.
