Yes. Other than the murder for hire/cocaine drug money robbery a couple of years ago and the very recent shooting in broad daylight at the bistro their is just the normal amount of violent crime in that area. perhaps getting the statistics from the authorities would help you to make an informed decision. would you actually rely on the subjective opinion of complete strangers on the internet to determine the "safety " of a neighborhood or are you just taking a survey?

My best guidance would be to simply look at the Philadelphia Police Department's interactive crime map and check out each area that you have questions regarding.
Another excellent source of info is a website called Everyblock that can keep you up to date on the specific happenings in an area.
