With Drexel's expanding presence inspiring redevelopment through Powelton Village and knocking on the door of not-so-popular Mantua, I believe the home invasion incidence is an outlier.

I need to know where Wiota street near Spring Garden. The article did a poor job in explaining where the incident happened

You can't decide to not live in an ENTIRE area because of one incident. That's ridiculous. This kind of stuff happens all the time, everywhere. You think houses aren't robbed in the suburbs? Think again. Stop worrying so much.

Also, this incident did not happen in Powelton Village. The Northern border of Powelton Village is Spring Garden. The Western border is Lancaster Ave. This happened in Mantua.

I;m sorry but I want to put myself in the safest neighborhood I can and that's why it will take a lot of creative planning on my part. I did once and I believe I can do it again.

Just found out exactly where this incident happened and it's nowhere near the area i have my eye on so this story is irrelevant to me.

From reading your posts, I don`t think city life is for you.There is not a neighborhood in any big city,that 100% crime free. Maybe you should buy some land out in a very rural part of PA or NJ. You should be very safe there.

The area I live in now is a 100% crime free which is why I been here for 12 years. It's the

"Schyulkill River Park" area of the city

I have never heard of any crime in this neighborhood since I been living here. Or maybe the news chose not ton report it but I have not heard of any crime stories.
