My best suggestion to you is to call the local police station and ask for a current police report. University of Pennsylvania also does a great crime report on there website. In addition to that, you may want to drive through the neighborhood at various times of the day (early morning, mid day and later in the evening).
I hope this helps.

I work in the Neighborhood it's not the best area but it's close to the public transportation it's a lot of older people that live in the community and they are trying to build the area up .The opinion is your own at the end of the day it will be you that live there ride by at night or go

If you are concerned about safety, your best source of information is the local police department, why not visit/call and ask all your questions, they'll gladly help and you will have heard all there is to hear firsthand--also, if unfamiliar with the area, do visit more than once and at different times of day, look at everything that is important to you, possibly chat with locals/neighbors, etc., then make your determination. Keep in mind that real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Hi, Doris.

I appreciate your question, but this is not a question a licensed agent can typically answer for you. The best answer I can give is for you to do some research at This website allows you to see crime statistics throughout Philadelphia.

Best of luck.
