East Parkside is a blighted now. But I heard that in about 10 years this area might see experience revitalization. What's your opinion

Fairmount Park conservatory along with Parks and Recreation have funding for a plan to revitalized the "centennial district" which is between the Please Touch Museum and the High school of the Future.
this will be a major boost of the neighborhood. also the Zoo has completed some revitalization plans along girard avenue.

Anna obviously does not live in Philly. This area is in the beginning stages of revitalization. Many investors jumping into area. Parkside ave all the way to Belmont you will see construction being done daily. Multi families will soon turn into single families and infrastructure will create further viability for the Parkside growth that is occurring.

Follow the money. Microsoft School of the Future, Please Touch Museum and Philadelphia Zoo all stabilize and enhance this area. The University of Pennsylvania expanded Catchment zone now includes Parkside.

Excellent transit, cleared land, grand houses to renovate.... if you have the time to wait; there's a future here.

There is interest in this area, blighted as it may be, lots of vacant land and abandoned property makes it primed for large development. But, time is a factor as well as money

Keep in mind that opinions are often suggestive--unfortuantely, areas change all the time and who knows what will happen tomorrow, let alone in ten years --none of us can answer with certainty what tomorrow will bring.
