When you cross a street with lots of incoming traffic, you will walk parallel to the flow of traffic and in a direction opposite to it.

n. A historically diverse community located east of Piedmont Ave. and Downtown Atlanta. It is one of the oldest sections of the city, having been built in the 1890s. The main thoroughfare in today's Old Fourth Ward is Boulevard, which was the site of economic decline throughout the 1950s-1980s, and now consists mostly of section 8 housing. The area is still infamous for its drug dealers, prostitution, and other crime. Rumor has it, however, that the city has been making efforts to clean up the neighborhood and restore it to its original state.
