Has anyone visited there are possibly know what side of town to stay away from? Not being rude just dont wont to get mugged.
Philidelphia is a great city. Walk it early in the morning. A fantastic mix of new glass office towers and hundred year old buildings. Watch the sun shine off the office towers and reflect on buildings as old as America. Grab a cup of coffee and walk towards the Constitutional Musuem and the Liberty Bell. Read the historical markers around town.Has anyone visited there are possibly know what side of town to stay away from? Not being rude just dont wont to get mugged.
Phila. has always been divided up by gangs, if you're in a neighborhood and you don't look like you belong there, there's a pretty good chance somebodies going to try to beat you down just for being in the wrong place. I'm 60 years old, was born in north Philly and I'm telling you that's the way it was back then and it hasn't done anyting but get worse.The worst place I have ever been in anywhere was in north Philly.
Four of us(good sized Texans) in a rental car. In certain parts of north Philla while stopped at stoplights, everyone would stare, and a few groups would start walking towards us in the car. This just wasn't at one light, this was at several. Now I am pretty sure we coulda handled some of them,,,,but dang sure not all of them.h:
Kinda like what Ron White said, "....I don't know how many of them it would have taken to whip my ***, but I knew how many they were going to use."
