A REALY BAD PLACE TO LIVE.
Posted On: 7/4/2012 4:08:26 PM
I was born and raised in Philadelphia 1948 to 1966. Graduated from Father Judge High School and went into the Army for 20 years. Retired and returned to Philadelphia in 1986. I was shocked to find that every living family member had moved away from Philadelphia. I'am talking over 72 people moved out of the city and most moved out of the State. I had to find out for myself, why my City was not the place I grew up in. Well, it did not take long to figure out how bad Philadelphia had become. I moved to Northeast Philadelphia, wanted to take my kids into the City to show off the great cultural locations near downtown. I took public transportation as I did when I was growing up in the City. That was a mistake. It was filthy and on the elevated train "The L" we were robbed at gun point. After arriving in downtown a guy tried to pick my pocket at Independence Hall. I could not sent my kids to public school because they were tormented everyday because they were white. Move the kids to Catholic School and not much better.
I had to leave Philadelphia. It truly is the worst City in America. Before you decide to move to Philadelphia, look up the US Census reports for 1990, 2000 and 2010. you will see why no one wants to live there. "White flight".
