Cousin of the expression folklore.
Streetlore could be often dangerously misleading pieces of information. So, do not follow everything you hear on the street. Pass it through your own common sense reasoning, gather corroborative knowledge, weigh the cost-befit ratio, and possibility of greater risks.
But many a times, you could bump into precious knowledge/solution/nirvana/cure/answers to stuff you have been seeking in a long time and accidentally so while in a public place through the phenomenon of streetlore. In such cases, normally a socially responsible and compassionate stranger would have offered you a piece of advice that you never got from any professional or friend despite frantic seeking.
If you want to spread some precious knowledge through streetlore, please always think and rethink if it is really precious for others and not just you, and not harmful to folks in general. If it was a bit of knowledge that you alone and no one else known to you benefited from, mention that to the stranger who receives your knowledge.
Don't be fixated on 'STREET' part of the streetlore, you could benefit or suffer damage from streetlore that goes on online too.
Street knowledge, street facts.
Lay me down with wisdom.
