Crime has been around since the beginning of society. With these criminals, comes their influence on the people they interact with. Although the people that they associate with may not be bad, they are still affected by the encounter. These criminals affect the safety of our streets and sidewalks, taking away the natural beauty of the area, the avid flow of traffic crossing the streets, and depleting the overall value of the surrounding area. Using both Jacobs and Hammett's works to examine this gallery, interpret how criminals and the influence they bring with them disrupts the flow of the environment.
