Yep, exactly... Division ST in Arlington is filled with old motor lodges that were at one time the nicest places to stay in town, when HW 80 was the main east-west thoroughfare through north Texas. Now they're ALL crack and meth and prostitution hot spots. It's sad... because they're all still visually interesting from the roadway.
