It's Philadelphia– crime is everywhere you look. There's nothing too awful going on here, however, unless you recall the situation with the girl going missing and turning up dead a few years ago.
I love Northern Liberties– be it the fact that there's an amazing LGBT culture here, a plethora of hipsters and young people, and lively neighbors, it's an overall good place to live.
