About Pennsport

Hi Pennsport, My wife and I are looking to buy a home in the 400 block of Moore St. area. In our research, though, we've noticed that in the past month there have been 2 shootings near that area and at least 2 more within a 15 min walk. Up to May though it seems Pennsport was relatively quiet. Trulia lists the crime as low relative to Philadelphia and other sites also claim crime in the area isn't bad.

We'd like some insider thoughts; homes in Philadelphia are getting up there in price and if possible I'd like to avoid a costly mistake. I look forward to getting some inside perspective.

  • Steven Buller Beer Jesus

    You don’t have to worry, a vast majority of the shootings have to deal with street beefs, they also are HIGHLY LIKELY to be targeted crimes. The average joe doesn’t get involved in shootings.

  • I'm looking to sell my house on moyamensing closer to McKean. We haven't posted the house yet but if you are interested in let me know.

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.
