Philadelphia, Pa. has always been a low key area especially when you were born and raised. So many crimes, drugs and loads of problems with our education system, it's hard to tell tourists know how "good" it is to live in the city. Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with this city. It can be colorful from afar, through pictures and other experiences from festivals but once you go really deep into the city, it's a dark place that needs help.

Things are not too bad in this area, but it is starting to see more crime, just not directly in this neighborhood. The good thing is there is police presence when needed and you don't have to wait long for them to show up if there is trouble. I feel safe in my neighborhood.
The general atmosphere of the area in which I live is okay; I would not choose to live here again. I think it is a very livable, peaceful, safe area, but I prefer a lively location. It is pretty safe compared to other parts of the city and country, and I think it will remain as such.
