That Really Grinds My Gears...Bad Marketing
I kind of get a bad feeling in my stomach every time I hear someone call North Philly "The Badlands". Seriously, Philly (and lots of other cities) does not need this negative perception of a neighborhood that has many things to offer. Sure there are people that wouldn't venture off into this area, but you really just have to be smart about it. Don't go there at 12 a.m. or even alone for that matter. I have lived in Philadelphia for 7 years and even worked in the neighborhood for 2 years and nothing has ever happened to me *knocks on wood*.
