What Renters Like and Dislike About Southwest Philadelphia Philadelphia

Fairly quiet neghborhood. Close to public transportation. Ver close to major road networks. Close to local fast food restaurants.

i like my neighbors they are good people generally. they are doing the best they can and are nice people that have circumstances

It's convenient to public transportation and markets. Also, things are so close and easily accessible

Nothing it's shooting all the time my kids can't even go outside to play on any giving time sticking you up taking u phone

Like to go outside of the neighborhood,have some nice neighbors, sometimes is can be quite is only depends

I ordered a steak that was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Finally, I ordered a cake for dessert. The texture of the cake is very delicate, the taste is very good, let people have endless aftertaste. I had a good, happy weekend in this restaurant.
