My parents grew up here and they always told me it was a great place to grow up and a nice neighborhood with nice families and people. That was a few decades ago. While there are there are still the parks and there are lots of stores and shops, the overwhelming majority of people in the neighborhood don’t care about it and have turned the place upside down sadly. Every time I drive through it doesn’t make me happy and doesn’t look good. I don’t live to far away and I know people that live in tacony still, I went to school in the neighborhood for a few years as well and my grandma lived there until a few years ago. But now, the place has gone downhill, there are now a bunch of renters who don’t care about their property and more crime, unfriendly people who don’t care about their appearance, and such... it’s sad to see this happen. There are still some few nice people, blocks and shops/ restaurants around that are from the the nicer time.

A great place to live! Tacony is an up and coming neighborhood with new business opportunities available.
There are many stores that are easily accessible in the neighborhood. There is currently construction happening to the library which sucks. The traffic is minimal. But the one thing is the wawa just closed down the street.
