    This is one of the worst and most dangerous intersections in the city–even when there is no fighting.

    14th Street is Shockoe SLIP not the Bottom.

    It seems when anything that goes bad around there they automatically call it the Bottom. They get fussy when it is something good then it is the Slip.
