not particularly safe. there are certainly worse areas of the city, but broad and girard is always busy and seems to be a magnet for wingnuts. depending on what you are comfortable with though, it is close to temple. personally, if i wanted a close commute to temple i would either look around frankford ave. in fishtown, a block or so north of girard around 2nd - 5th Sts, or francisville (just north of fairmount ave. before ridge).
