As I understand it - and now I've seen all 5 seasons of The Wire, I feel like I now ought to know this kind of thing - the sight of a pair of shoes dangling high from telegraph or electricity wires, usually over a junction, is a tacit sign that this might be a place to 'score' of an evening.
Yet how on earth to explain this?
