My community does not have enough resources in my opinion to make the neighborhood a more safe and enjoyable place to live. I would like to move myself and my family out of this neighborhood because of the drugs and violence that surrounds us. I would like to see more activities other than the park and library up the street. It keeps children out of trouble but there should be more programs available.

Since it is Philadelphia, there is always an opportunity to find work as there are a lot of retail chains especially for those who want to work part-time in a fast food chain or in a clothing store. There are a lot of stores in the downtown area as well as the surrounding areas.
It has the products that you are looking for, but the quality of customer service is very poor. There always seems to be an issue when I am a customer, a lot of loitering and the owners of these stores do not mind.
