Is it just me? Downtown Austin or any large city

Maybe it’s just me getting older (72). Maybe never noticed it before.
Yesterday my wife and i went to the RV show in the Austin Convention Center. Ended up parking on 7th St at a city lot.
The number of homeless or whatever we had to walk thru to get to the Center was not a good feeling. In fact it is the very first time i can remember being so glad i was armed. Several people tried to engage us in conversation and a couple just stood in front of us. This is at noon.
The same thing an hour later on the return.
Maybe just age but not interested in downtown Austin any longer. When you are really glad you carry i see no need to be there.
Austin has plenty to offer outside of the downtown area. Problem is it’s just not Austin.
Yes my hand was in my right pocket way too many times on that walk.
