Mostly the older/elderly are kind but the "younger" people here are very petty, mean, and stuck-up. They tend to give you attitude for no reason. Many people here tend to involve themselves in drug activity and you tend to see those who do them at night time, so beware. The community is mostly to themselves, which isn't an issue for me. Schools tend to not get much support from families around here too much.

They're very open to pets, as some will want to play or pet them but some aren't very kind to them.

This section of Philadelphia is mainly populated by the middle working class. I believe there would be great improvement in this neighborhood if it was more community activities.
My area is high in violence and needs to be improved. There's a lot of killing, robbery, and sexual assault. Drug selling and handling is also high in this area. It's scary walking around at night and it's very dangerous. Police are always around searching and lingering around.
