2005 Article from the NY Times

Interesting article.

Some years ago, when they tried to pass a law thet required all hookers to be inside, no street walkers, hundreds of them — the Marias Magdalenas –– marched on city hall topless. As the article says, prostitution is technically illegal, but is tolerated — Zona Norte is called the Zone of Tolerance too, and one of the streets is Articulo 1290, or Article 123 of Baja Calif. constitution that allows Zona Norte to operate within its confines. Right now, it may be the only viable section of the city that brings in money. Note that this article from the NY Times is dated 2005 — I don’t think girls are making $100 day or $3000 a week right now, and prices have gone down all over.
