I grew up in edgemoor. 15 Polk dr. to be exact.. Edgemoor is a shitty neighborhood. Stabbings, shootings, drugs. It was awful. Dealers had kids peddling drugs that were hidden in a box full of cassette tapes. People were shot at in front of my house, and I can't count the stabbings that went on..people who praise this neighborhood clearly are on drugs and deserve to stay there

The only thing you're draining is dudes' testicles, you little punk. Claymont is all scum like you. It's an embarrassing place to have lived, ever.

Cool it, Claymonster. You have no idea what you're talking about--get out and know your Claymont neighbors better . Take a walk up to the local Safeway off Naamans Road , and stop in at Two Stones Pub Naaman's and buy everyone a round. You'll be surprised!

You go there because you are a failure, you live in Claymont and you are forced to keep with the same type of scummy person that lives there.
A bunch of Irish union scumbags at that bar, losers whose pickup trucks have their names stenciled on the doors. They have nametags on their coveralls too. Just wrench-turning slavic scum.
Just because You got beat up outside the Dew Drop Inn by a bunch of biker lesbians , don't sour on life. You can come out from your Mom's basement and give it another try getting to know the neighborhood. And what's wrong with unions? You have a job?, a decent wage? safe working conditions? child labor laws? health benefits?--all thanks to our Unions staying strong.

I read Kaid Benfield's NRDC blog: "The very embodiment of sustainability,in a small city" [ " A sustainable built environment isn’t one thing. It is many things, functioning best when assembled together in the right places with the right ingredients. Context is everything: a so-called “green” building won’t be green in its performance if it’s in the wrong place, contributing to suburban sprawl and requiring people to drive long distances to get to and from it. Heck, an ordinary building without any green bells and whistles at all, if placed in a walkable, transit-accessible downtown environment, will actually use less energy and emit lower levels of greenhouse gases than a LEED-certified structure in sprawl, because central locations reduce driving distances and make it easier for people to use less polluting transportation alternatives.

That’s why I’m all in for revitalization of downtowns and inner-city neighborhoods, when done well: revitalization recycles land, infrastructure and buildings, while reducing pollution. " ] http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/kbenfield/t...

I viewed a good webinar discussion on Genuine Progress Indicators and implementation of government policies . Here's the slides of that informative presentation :How to Measure Progress? Replacing GDP with the “Genuine Progress Indicator”- http://netransition.org/2014/05/22/measure-pr... http://netransition.org/2014/05/22/measure-pr...

You don't like the crowd at Two Stones Pub? Try George's Bar near the Claymont Old Stone Library and first school on Philadelphia Pike(across from Archmere Academy)

That's Right. Jamar Wright is a struggling , small businessman . His role model is Jamie Dimon , CEO of J P Morgan Bank , who just started out more privileged and white ,but had no bigger or brighter ideas then Jamar Wright .

I'm from NY and I have never witnessed a neighborhood like this. This is some different type of ghetto. As soon as my lease is up I'm getting the hell outta hear. No one has control of there kid and I mean little kids, I broke up a fight with 10 year olds jumping on a lil kids and the kids that was jumping him look like they wanted to jump on me. They have no respect. No regards for life these kids are doomed future drug dealers and teenage baby mommas. Good riddens to this place. The police are scared of the people around here. It's a sight to see. total kaos.


I AGREE, MY LEASE IS UP AND IM OUTA HERE. THE.KIDS HAVE NO RESPECT, THE PARENTS EITHER. THERES DRUGS EVERY WHERE. TRASH ALL OVER, AMD NOW IM HEARING THAT THERES BEEN SHOOTINGS? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I HAVE THREE YOUNG CHILDREN. ILL HURT SOMEONE. PLEASE GOD KEEP US SAFE, AMEN

I lived there too on Pennywell Drive. It was a great place in the 60's. I have nothing but sweet memories of that place.
