Norfolk’s hey day is long gone. It used to be a great place to live. I grew up there and loved it. Now it is a hell hole and the Va Pilot is a rag that suits it’s surroundings.
Went to Waterside to celebrate the 4th of July and as soon as the fireworks were over..the cops told everyone to get out of there. Kids on bicycles from the projects descended on the area.
After MLK Jr was killed...it was dangerous for the Navy Chiefs to drive through Titustown. Blockades were set up by mobs and a few chiefs were drug out of their cars and beat. There are a lot of unreported stories in Norfolk and Portsmouth...you won’t ever hear it in the media.
