Gerald Hargrove sits on a bench eating a cup of soup in front of a wall with names of homeless people that have died in the area. “I knew people that are on all three walls and others that are not on the wall,” said Hargrove. When asked if he feared for his safety in the streets, he said, “That’s a difficult question to answer. During the day. no. At night, once in a while, I get scared because I’m by myself with a couple of cats. I do the best I can to deal with people.”
