Sneakers?

I once heard that a pair of sneakers or shoes hanging from a power line meant there was some kind of drug dealing action going on in the vicinity.

Is that still true?

If so, this place around 6th and Jefferson is a drug haven.

Can anyone confirm this?

Voorhees is hardly an urban environment. Kids throw up their sneakers in many cities. I’ve never known it to signify drug activity – it’s just a city thing. Some kids steal each other’s sneakers and throw them up.

[quote comment=”52775″]Well not necessarily ! I once saw on VH1 on the ‘White rapper show’ that the participants first got some snickers to wear and if they’d lose, they’d had to throw the pair on a string outside. Cool, huh? The sign of the losers! Here you can see something like that: (SPAM link removed) :twisted:[/quote]

Growing up in the 70s-80s in the Great Lakes … our version was that it designated a place where a girl had been attacked. All powerlines inside the neighborhood were underground, so the only places you saw sneakers hanging were on the edges of the neighborhood, like train tracks, etc.
