It's only going to get worst you have to not carry a purse these days & don't show your phone. My family lives near there I worry about my brother who is in Septa early in the morning.

I'm moving out of the area because of this BS, and I know friends of mine are too. It's so unfortunate that crime and the general disregard for each other is literally chasing people out of this great city...

And, of course, people allowing themselves to be 'chased out' only furthers the decline - stable neighborhoods are a great crime deterrent because they lead to greater community investment. W. Mt. Airy still has the lowest crime rate per capita of neighborhoods in the city, last I heard.

Agree to disagree, Morgan.
