Yes, but is it really the Metro's fault? The heroin distribution and a number of the other incidents predate the metro. Also, the Metro is pretty far to walk from the Mall. I think Metro helps when it is closer to a mall than F-S Metro. I think the lack of foot traffic caused by leases lapsing kind of cascaded the decline.
I still go there for hair cuts, but sort of like the rest of the mall, there is less to cut.
