    Reading PA is considered "bad"?
    I have found what Pennsylvanian's perception of a "Bad Neighborhood" is VERY different from mine.

    For instance in my town they call the local government housing "the Projects" and "The Ghetto".
    LOL Yeah right.
    They actully look like decent clean neighborhoods.
    And if Im in a store or a Dr's office and a clean cut black person walks in, the peopel in teh whole entire place looks scared to death.

    Its really hilarious and sad at the same time.

    While Reading isn't quite as bad as Chester or Philly, it does have it's bad parts, just like Coatesville.

    There are some places in the above listed where I WILL NOT go unless armed, company policy be

    Most of the south eastern part of PA is becoming more...ghetto I guess, just the other day we had a shooting right around the corner from our apartment building, that and we have a good number of domestic arguements quite often. It's time to move.

    Here in the peaceful suburbs of Pittsburgh this week we've had a cop beat up and put in the hospital, offender is still at large. Three guys shot the next evening in the same neighborhood, and these are supposed to be safe neighborhoods.

    Don't forget the regular ole eastern parts of PA. The lehigh valley has quite the areas of crime. Downtown Allentown, south side bethlehem, south side in easton. Just a carjacking at a gas station a couple blocks off the easton square (two armed assailants steal car from couple getting gas at gas station. It is within 1 - 2 blocks of a police substation. Plus we can keep updated with the latest at

    That's one thing that is starting to amaze me. As someone who lives outside of Philly, you'd think it would become better once you get out in the suburbs. The truth of the matter is many of these small towns are starting to have high crime rates and enormous illegal immigration problems. Hazelton!!

    Yessir indeed. I was born and raised in Hazleton, PA. It has definitely gotten much rougher since my time there.

    Everytime I think of Scranton, I think of King Pin (movie) and the Office (TV show).

    Been a while since I swung by here - wow 161 posts - but hey it's been goin' a while I guess. Thx to all.

    Good to see so many Keystoners - mind you, apart from actual PBH folks - hoping to see someone closer to me hook up... eagle5 however is pretty close so that's a start!

    I keep seeing folks from Northern VA show location as NOVA .. I think it's time I started using SOPA for my area

    Not to hijack your thread P95, but you should start a thread that's specifically for your region like I did http://www.therallypoint.org/forum/i...p?topic=1399.0

    I'm sure it'll take awhile to spread to get a roll call in you're area, but I'm sure there are a ton of West Virginia DC.com members near you too.

    PA's a big State and this thread proves how spread out everyone is.

    Good idea Jamie ....... being only 30 miles or so above the Mason Dixon line there is some continuity with MD and it's not too far into WV either. I guess it can be regarded overall as the SW quadrant.
