When I woked at Chase (1 Chase Manhattan Plaza down in the Wall Street area), the place was litterally ringed with drug dealers selling not just "bags and joints, bags and joints", but "boy and girl", and anything else you wanted. Even David Rockefeller remarked on it one day -- they offered him something. I was acosted practically every day for something.

I will not comment on the state of our Treasury Department traders after London closed at noon.

My experience of SP is that it's relatively free of this trouble compared to other places I've been, but I think CHLOE was quite right to post this; people often think that they are leaving ALL their problems behind when they go on vacation. A good reminder for those with kids.
