Its laughable. Oxford circle, Lawncrest, Lawndale & Tacony the safest? Hardly

What types of crime, exactly, determine the colors? Is it overall crime, including property crime? For example, car breakins suck, but they don't necessarily affect safety, per se.

How is Bridesburg orange but West Oak Lane is green?

West Germantown stretching well into West Mt. Airy (recently named one of the best bit city neighborhoods in America) is red (practically up to Allens Lane), yet Fairhill and most of North Philly is orange.

You've either got bad information, bad judgement, or are using bad colors. Either way, it's a bad map.

Some will probably be more happy with this traditional map
