See why the of prostitutes working 82nd Avenue has skyrocketed. Working without fear, most prostitutes — like this woman, later arrested, and charged with soliciting prostitution — openly troll for customers in the light of day.

Although another john tried to speed away after being busted by an undercover cop, the custody team closed in on him before he could escape the long arm of the law. A man, dressed in prototypical zoot suit attire, walks with them.
