The street has musicians, artists, and in some cases, poets.
"I probably do five poems an hour," Bill Keys said.
Keys is considered a "speed poet." In between 13th Street and Broadway, he sets up a little table with a miniature typewriter. A sign drapes down from the table saying, "Poems While You Wait."
"I live off of the love I get from people I meet for 15 minutes," Keys explained.
Keys writes poems for people in 15 minutes or less while they're hanging out around the mall.
He asks them what sort of poem they want and then interviews them for information.
Keys takes that information and turns it in to a poem.
"I have [written] well over a thousand poems," He explained. "It gives me the interface to interact with every type of person."
Keys takes donations, but doesn't require people to pay him. He says he loves writing poems because it's in his blood.
"That is what I live for," he said.
