Big City Survival Tactics, Philadelphia
If you get accosted here there is no help,people will look the other way and pretend nothing happened...that's the general attitude here. And you can't even pack weapons for defense because the victims are to blame here and the criminals get away. City of brotherly coverups.
Listen im from philadelphia 56th and Catherine to be exact ......aside from the apperances philadelphia is a city of neighborhoods not gangs...there are no gangs in philadelphia we despise them..we are a city of individuals who make up neighborhoods and take pride of the streets that we come from...To me its safer for someone out of town to move about philadelphia than someone who is not from there because if you are from there you cant just rummage thru every neighborhood without there being consequences..If your a tourist the locals no matter what neighborhood would be more than happy to see you and help you, just you judgement and discernment on who you talk to and deal with just like anywhere else...The only people that really have to deal with the crime are people that are into the crime otherwise you can have a great life and make long term friends in philadelphia.....
While the city is apparently quite safe, always be careful when walking at night, especially if you're alone, and keep your valuable items with you, out of sight.
