We hear a lot about the homeless and prostitutes on the streets in Waikiki, but strolling down Kalakaua any given evening, those folk are outnumbered by artists and musicians. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa offers this sampling of the scene.
HPD Spokesperson Michelle Yu says between July 2010 and June 2011, officers made 24 arrests and issued 121 warnings for peddling in Waikiki. The majority arrested or warned were street performers. HPD officers continue to address noise complaints and sidewalk obstructions.
