Don is correct that we as licensed Realtors cannot steer you towards or away from a Neighborhood.
I would suggest that you checkout the area district Police Blotter report ( if you are concerned ) and also go shopping at the nearest market on a Friday or Saturday night.
You may bump into your future neighbors?

It is against federal law for an agent to make comments about an area. You can find this information on the Philadelphia Police Dept. website.
If you are not working with an agent at this time feel free to contact me regarding your real estate needs.
