Living in Burholme for my entire life has given me insight into its characteristics. I have, for the most part, had a pretty good time here in Burholme. In my opinion it is very family friendly and it is close to many places that are a melting pot of culture, fun, and happiness to all that are part of it.

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.
