Rhawnhurst is a small neighborhood located in the northeast region of Philadelphia. It is one of the safest communities in the city allowing people to become more friendly and outgoing. People in this neighborhood watch over eachother and make sure that crime stays at at minimum at all times. This allowed my friends and I to play around comfortably and care free on those hot summer days. The only advice I would give is that the newer generation of people moving in should keep the same values and love for the community that we had and still have.

Since I just recently moved here, the experience for every new resident in a new environment is always one to get use to. I have only been here for one month so everything that I say cannot and should not be guaranteed to be true. However, so far I have not had any negative complaints about where I currently reside. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, the neighbors are friendly and kind, overall it is a neighborhood that many would wish for. A single family home in a suburban environment is good enough to reside in. It is nothing too much and nothing too little if that makes any sense. Currently I feel relaxed in this area especially when considering crime rate, I have not heard any issues. The only disadvantage of living here so far is the convenience of traveling to the city as it takes an estimated one hour to get to my college.
The area isn't perfect but it not all bad either. Living here gives you access to a lot, the public schools aren't so bad depending on what public school you go to; what really defines whether you have a good experience or bad experience is the people you surround yourself with but that counts for anywhere you live. The city needs to improve in taking more care of the city and how it looks. I think many places need renovations. I love how in Philadelphia you really get to experience all four seasons, unlike other places where certain seasons dominate. Many people disagree but I think the title "City of Brotherly Love" is still valid.
