I bought a home in Pennsauken almost 20 years ago. When I moved in it was a mostly white street with one latin family. It has since changed to 50% white 50% black or latino. Let me tell you this town is going down hill fast!Dogs barking at all hours,kids and those loud mufflers on there cars,boom,boom,boom, blaring from car stereos. The guy at the end of the street was firing his pistol on july 4th. Yes it was a real pistol recoil and all. And yes I called the cops. Then there was the friggin rooster crowing a rooster!!!!The latin family down the street has a pool.Every weekend sat. and sun. they have a big gathering in there backyard.The noise all weekend till 10 at night is very loud.I got woken one night by there guests shouting at 11:30 at night yelling up and down the street. I have started a really good job and can well afford to move.But I feel sorry for the older folks wo can't or won't. Mt taxes will skyrocket as these people use all the social services the county and town provide. I have to but up with this then I have to pay for it too? I don't think so.
