About Skid Row

A skid row or skid road is a run-down or dilapidated urban area with a large, impoverished population. The term originally referred literally to a path along which workingmen skidded logs. Its current sense appears to have originated in the Pacific Northwest. Examples are Pioneer Square, Seattle, Washington, Skid Row in Los Angeles, San Francisco's Tenderloin District, and the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver.
