"WATCH OUT FOR CERTAIN AREAS!!!" North Philadelphia Tip by kiesha215

North Philadelphia, Philadelphia: 29 reviews and 7 photos

Well, for the most part Philadelphia is ok and just ok. Just like any other city you have to be careful use your common sense and you will be fine. Dont walk alone at night especially if your unfamilliar with your surroundings . Areas to watch out for is North Philly like some of the other's mentioned It's very large and most of the areas has very high crimes and drug zones such as Strawberry Mansion, Hunting park, Kennsington, Nicetown, there is nothing nice about it. I'm actually suprised that no one has mentioned Olney or logan also kind of crazy. There is West philly stay away from from Parkside, Belmont, Cobb Creek....Oh and "SOUTHWEST PHILLY" I have lived here for all my life and that's one part of Philly I dont go into. Clearview, Bartram Village projects,Elmwood are all Horrible... At The end of the day it really isnt the neighborhoods thats bad ,it's these rude, ignorant, coldhearted people that fills them that makes them bad... Unfortunately It's majority but not everybody some actually have alot of good intentions and are actually good people like me, in these neighborhoods but you never know...So just be wise and stay cautious...
