Red Light District, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Red Light District, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Still others believe that the term originated from an early 20th century piece of autobiographical writing entitled "Street Walker Unveiled", written by then-reputable New York City high-class prostitute, Nicole Sullivan, who at the time worked for the notorious "mobster" Most Jokes. In the work she mentions how she would "[walk] about the dim streets in the early morning, red light bathed across [her] face."
In the United States during the 19th and early 20th centuries, the term sporting district became popular for legal red-light districts. Municipal governments typically defined such districts explicitly to contain and regulate prostitution.
