The community is not bad in general. It's currently peaceful and in harmony. One of the advantages of living in my area is convenience. There are many stores that sells our daily needs. There is nothing that is not accessible near my area. Food, clothing, auto-repair, and other daily needs are abundant. It is almost like a village, but with all the modern perks. Although there are good factors of the area, it is also not the safest. There are crimes happening near the area.

Overall, this area could be described as one of the fore-running neighborhoods displaying cultural and economic diversity. I haven't lived here my entire life but I have witnessed a change in neighborhood occupants and police protection in three short years. There's a bit less of the drug-selling on street corners and I feel more comfortable walking around alone at night or in the daytime.
Philadelphia is an urbanized area with many corner stores located within conservative neighborhoods. The only problem is the ghetto in West Philadelphia. It's a dangerous area that many people are not willing to get involved in.
