The area in which I live in is currently facing the results of gentrification in other parts of the city. I go to school at Temple University and more wealthier students and residents are moving into the North Philadelphia and Center City areas and pushing poorer minority families to the northeast and outskirts of the city. The northeast is where I live, it used to be considered more middle class,but now it is becoming more and more low-income.
Its a nice area. There are a lot of friendly people. The traffic is not so bad, so getting to class is not really a struggle for me. There are many schools in the surrounding area as well, which is good for people who have children.
