On any one street you find a combination of a liquor store, fast check cashing place, and a church.

The Chinese takeout place mostly sells fried chicken. And off brand chicken joints like Lincoln Fried Chicken and Kennedy fried chicken, owned by Middle easterners.

There’s this strip of Lehigh Avenue in North Philly around 24th to 26th or so that is classic ghetto.

There are 2-3 chicken / rib joints, a Chinese food place with the foot-thick bullet proof glass, a “checks cashed” place, a beauty salon, and a hardware store with a sign advertising bedbug removal. Also at least 5-6 churches - two or cathedrals but the rest are storefronts and one fortune teller.

While ubering recently I saw something I had never seen,a metal box anchored to a porch with an open padlock on it with a sign above it that read,"Please Mr. Postman...ok it actually said dear delivery people please put any packages and mail in this box and lock padlock."

Oh classic North Philly - the front porch has a mesh gate to it. Cause you’re worried the bums will sleep on your porch otherwise. 😆

You see a 'Dead End' street sign and the word 'End' has been blacked out. (Saw that one in one outside of Detroit - scary area)

Streets are barren during the day and then the project's "inmates" wake up and hit the streets. We used to call them vampires.

You can buy one cigarette at a time. 

:lol:  I wish I could do that.  You could make bank.  Before I sold shooters I would have people come in complaining, You ain't got nothing smaller than a half-pint??  I'm thinking, it's 200 milliliters dude, how small do you want?

All the little kids on the block are sent out by their parents to go run and play around the open fire hydrant that is shooting water everywhere.
