    That is why I no longer live in Philly and especially in Queen's Village. It has become a dangerous and dangerously polorized place and I do not feel safe there. Sad to say after having gone to college at 33rd and Walnut and living there for almost 20 years. The present mayor can take a great deal of the blame for same. But I don't think he will. It is so bad now that I won't even drive into the city unless I have to. And I am definitely not alone in my feelings.
