BEST PLACE TO GET ARRESTED FOR SOLICITING SEX IN PUBLIC - 2008
Crosby Farm Regional Park
The competition for this dubious honor was surprisingly robust. Sen. Larry Craig's airport arrest ensured that the Lindbergh terminal would become the most notorious public gay cruising spot in the country. But locals know that the airport bathroom stalls can't compete with Crosby Farm Regional Park as a hotspot for soliciting anonymous sex. As Mara Gottfried reported in the Pioneer Press, St. Paul vice cops began targeting the park last year after repeated complaints about men exposing themselves and condoms littering the grass. The ensuing crackdown on the 160-acre park netted a rather remarkable 40 individuals on charges of lewd conduct. Among the arrestees: an 80-year-old man cruising for sex. Now that's moxie even a senator can admire.
