Gotta love those Liddonfield Projects. Weren't they supposed to tear down that cesspool years ago? As long as I remember that whole dump has had nothing but trash living in it. If you want a good laugh, drive past it on day as you go down Torresdale. Rows and rows of trash, but they got some nice Camrys and Maximas with 22 inch ghetto chrome rims parked outside.

This person speaks the undisputed truth. Just going to the McDonalds there is adventure. Good thing they can't afford the Dining Car.

near there in the 80's and 90's. The lack of civilization in that area never ceases to amaze me. LOL your right about the McDonalds there. The Pathmark is worse. When my parents used to live up here, they had their car broken into in the parking lot while grocery shopping. Have you ever driven through there??? It's gross. I've never seen a Philly cop in there and I don't blame them.

OOPS, didn't post the whole comment...

I was born and raised in Mayfair, so I have known of this dump since I went to school near there in the 80's and 90's. The lack of civilization in that area never ceases to amaze me.

Nope. I love NE philly and bought an older Tacony home last year. I'm in the process of rehabbing it now. My parents couldn't take it anymore and moved south, but I can't give up on my neighborhood yet. I'm getting close though. My car keyed twice, a hit and run by some PWT with no car insurance, my husband's truck sideswiped at night, various other assorted neighborhood crimes are making us look out of state also. It's a shame. Growing up in NE philly was so fun. What a mess it's turned into.

Agreed. And for anyone else reading this, this is exactly why there is "White Flight" in Philly.

Agreed. And to anyone else reading this post, this the one of the exact reasons for "White Flight" out of Philly.

Hey, not only in this country:

Two unarmed police officers who were attacked by a mob of 30 adults and teenagers were today receiving hospital treatment after being bitten, kicked and punched. The officers were attacked by the gang after asking a teenage girl to pick up some litter. Other teenagers and adults then attacked the officers after the girl refused their request and dropped the litter again. One of the officers required hospital treatment after the attack in Northend, Croydon, South London on Wednesday afternoon. Police said violence was sparked after the patrolling officers confronted the teenage girl at about 3pm. They asked her to pick up a fast food wrapper from a nearby takeaway which she did, before immediately dropping it in front of them. When they asked her to pick it up again a friend with the girl became aggressive towards the officers. The incident escalated quickly as a group of 30 people gathered around the officers and attacked them. Around five young females were joined by a group of older males in their thirties and forties. All members of the gang were described as black.

I am new to Philly and have grown to be sorry everyday that passes that I have moved here. The city is a sad city from the lack of pride and the filth not to mention the crime. I am really surprised at how bad off this city is and how little people care about this city. I can't wait to sell my home and move out of here. This has been the worst city I have lived in and not the first place I have lived. Not sure what is so wrong here but, the seems to be a real lack of caring here from the government to the citizens here. How did you all let this get so bad?

Because they assume if you talk with pride, morals or any values that you are white. So sad the way people think here. I say the same why do they assume that we are white just because we choose a better way to behave. So sad to think this way. The thugs are bringing us all down and why do we accept them.

dont encourage them to tear down the projects. then we just end up spending the working persons tax dollars to build more free housing for the lazy. i say we should round em up and draft em into the military. they'll have jobs, homes, and be off public assistance. before you flame me, not all military jobs are combat oriented.

LOL I didn't LET anything get bad. I didn't vote for Mayor Street. My parents raised me to not think everything is entitled to me, like some of these welfare recipients. Generation after generation growing up to pop out more and more kids and get more and more money from the state. Then the city decides to elect a mayor for all intense purposes, turned the city into a 8 year long ghetto BBQ. I am worried about them closing Liddonfield, because all it means is that there will be more destructive section 8 housing in NE philly. Not to mention a bunch of low life criminals living in nice twin homes with central air and garage. Nothing has destroyed NE philly like the intrusion of section 8 and public housing. Just look at this story. I feel bad for my neighborhood. A bunch of hard working families just trying to pay their bills only to have their property values decreasing from the scum moving in to the area. God help us all.

Hi..
I was a resident of Liddenfield for 12 years, and in the last two years it has gotten crazy. Disgusted comments however seem like racial thoughts and feelings.All people in Liddenfield are not ''scum'' or ''low criminals''..I am not..I have recently moved..A few bad apples can't spoil a whole bunch..[FOR ALL YOU RACIST] Learn facts before you try and state them!

Racist? Of course, isn't that always the way?... An excerpt from an article in the Washington Post: "One in nine black men ages 20 to 34 is behind bars. For black women ages 35 to 39, the figure is one in 100, compared with one in 355 for white women in the same age group." If you drive by those projects you see mostly all blacks, not trying for a better life. Just trying to make more money selling dope! It's a black problem in this country.

in the human race in general, there are some that
act like animals. and thats exactly what we had in
liddenfield projects.BUT NOT EVERYONE WAS LIKE THIS
AS SOME OF YOU THINK!!!
You had people living there that had real jobs trying to better ther lives, not everyone there were pushers,pimps,players, or welfare collecting
prostitutes!!! I pray for the ones that lived there that were upstanding citizens. predominently black or not I DON'T CARE NOT EVERYONE THAT LIVED THERE WAS TRASH!!!!!!
