walked around the neighborhood today, there's been more renovations than i'd realized. also reminded me that it's really a pleasant neighborhood on nice days but has some bad blocks. I definitely think it's worth considering but you still want to be careful since it really is block by block.I was at 17th and brown/perkiomen and it was really nice, yet 16th and brown is crappy. hard to believe how much difference a block can make
