2800 Chalmers is in the Allegheney West section of North Philadelphia. Like much of North Philadelphia, drugs and crime are a problem. But it is not as bad as some other parts of North Philly. Public transportation is goog, with the 48 and 32 buses running frequently along 29th street. The location is also 1 block away from Lehigh Avenue, where the 54 bus runs. Many take it to Broad street to ride the subway.
