Lived in Queen Village since 1998. I have deterred many folks from moving here. So many changes the last 5 years. We do not have good police protection here. Basic assault , folks getting in your face does not get action. And lots of changes. The dynamics of the area has changed to under 30 crowd moving who has less respect for trash rules ( trash out 2-5 days earlier. More bike riders on sidewalks ( 10 kids under 6 months old in the area) . More cars not even doing stops. May 14 th, there were an incident near 2nd and Monroe around 1 pm and no one called the police . Sorry- and good folks I have known have moved.
I reccomw d Bella Vista area. Great neighborhood association ( Q.v. only cares about zoning,glossy mags with irreverent articles and education.- )
Sorry I just do not feel it is a good area anymore. I wish I could move but my mortgage is too low.

Parking

Is there anywhere in Philly to securely park a small 10" moving truck overnight?

  • From the sounds of it, you want to pay an indoor garage to do so. there are two in the 1500 block of Latimer that I know of, plenty of others in town too.
