Well it must not be anything like the 78 or 85 move because they would be having the same issues.

John Africa, leader and founder of MOVE, died on May 13, 1985 as did everyone in the house on that day except, Ramona Africa and a child then called Birdy Africa. Others who were involved in the 1978 mess are in prison.

Whoever is left, wrt to MOVE, has been peaceful ever since.

There's an interesting convergence of events with them because May 13, 1985 was the same day that ground was broken for Liberty Place One.

I took the bus to Allegheny Station to connect to the MFL to return to South Philly this past weekend.

What an absolute sad display of humanity. Anyone know if it's dangerous or just "wild?"

Ride the 23 bus from Center City to Chestnut Hill and you will probably experience something similar.

That's kinda going through some of the worse drug areas in the city so it's probably dangerous to a certain degree.
Oh, I bet you did not see a single septa cop, right?

I wouldn't. Why? I have family living near there. My oldest living relative lives a short walk away from there. She's never been a crime victim. She's 99 years old.

Ahh the infamous "K&A". It has been home to open air prostitution and drugs for as long as I can remember. Probably one of the most notorious intersections in Philly's storied history. It is more wild than dangerous IMO although decentralizing the addicts from the tracks has brought an increase in crime and QOL issues on the streets nearby.

The 52nd and market area has always been a unattractive area to me
