Boring neighborhood, real quiet. Much more older people living there. People know each other very well, too well.

I think our local representatives understand the people of Philadelphia a lot better that the state representatives do. Because Philly is one of the few very populated cities in PA, we are ignored by our state reps.
I live in a good area, but I could walk three blocks down and not be surprised if a car pulled over and asked for directions. Because I live like this, I am constantly attentive and I know the difference between a man who is genuinely lost and a man who is about to mug me.
