You are better off staying on the east side of Broad (14th) Street.

Where exactly along 21st? Unless you're south of Snyder or north of Washington/South, it isn't the best area.

21st and Tasker is not a good area!!

In South Philly - if you plan on moving west of Broad Street make sure you are south of Passyunk Ave or North of Washington Ave. Anything in between is in pretty bad shape. East of Broad St is much better IMO except for the area roughly between 5th and 7th sts south of Washington.
