Thanks (?) to gentrification, virtually every neighborhood surrounding Center City is generally considered safe by urban standards. In the Fairmount/Brewerytown section, it seems that Poplar St. is on the edge of some less attractive areas. I consider the shooting tragedy at the Piazza at Schmidt's over in Northern Liberties to be an aberration. Some might feel that things are still a bit sketchy as SW Center City transitions into South Philly.

Other than that, if you're used to city living, then you can find a comfortable place to live bordering Center City.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks to public housing those areas all needed gentrification. Thanks to the same public housing all the areas just outside center city that have public housing also need gentrification.

Public housing destroys good neighborhoods.

If you're talking which town in the PA suburbs of Philly metro has the lowest crime rate, you'd probably be splitting hairs in many cases as the vast majority is safe. There are exceptions, the most notable being Chester (perhaps the one true suburban city on the PA side). Knowing your housing budget and where you plan to work/study/spend your time would help us help you.

any of the burbs surrounding the city.. I have not fond a suburb that has more crime then *any* part of the city... We did our homework when we moved.. Even the far NE in Somerton has more crime then the average town like Newtown. Here, look... use this site for other zip codes

Somerton..

Any of the suburbs? You mean you're willing to say places like Chester, Upper Darby and Yeadon have less crime than the far NE? What about Camden? Places like Center City have more crime overall, but since they have many times the people in the same sized area, it is a somewhat skewed picture. I think we're creating a loaded argument here based on what we define city and suburb by.

Don't get me wrong, the city has a crime problem, and the suburbs generally don't, at least not in the same way, but I like our odds of improving safety over the long-term in the city. That's another discussion though.

Chester and Camden are cities, and Upper Darby is basically one too in a lot of ways. Totally with you on Yeadon though. Camden and Chester probably will rebound at some point, but places like Yeadon and the other inner-ring burbs of Delco are going to go down hard and fast if the gentrification going outward in all directions from Center City continues, and how long they go down for will probably have a lot to do with how quickly and completely they connect themselves to the city more officially.

Please remember Chester City is in Delaware County, and know the difference between it and Chester County. Chester County is mostly safe except for some areas of Coatesville, and some other small enclaves.
