That's the wonderful thing about Philly, you can find shitty neighborhoods everywhere: north, south, west and... well... east is Camden, NJ which is even worse.

Heh. Seriously. I read an article a couple months ago that said that the estimated number of abandoned properties here is 40,000. It's crazy. I can think of at least three that I can walk to in under a minute from my house.

That's not surprising. Baltimore isn't very far from Philly and they both share similar architecture and similar economic problems.

I admire anyone from media circles throwing out stills like these which completely blow away everyone else's view of the American Dream.

yeah, it's been getting better though, i'd say. I help my dad do construction/landlord work in North Philly, and the areas that looked like hell almost ten years ago are coming up now
