I have lived in this neighborhood since I was born and it has changed drastically. Living close to Bridge and Pratt where the Frankford Transportation Center is located is a blessing and a curse. It is a center of violence and litter that spreads throughout the neighborhood from this center. However, being so close to public transportation is an easy and affordable way to get to Center City for work. Do not walk around by yourself at night.

I moved here 5 years ago from Port Richmond. The area is improving every day. New homeowners moving in, really close to public transportation, Parks and major roads, more home for your buck. Diverse area, with a real chance to build up the area.
Neither the best nor the worst. I would like to see more community involvement. I would like to see some action taken against the drug dealing, pushing and addicts.
