You mean the crime rate dropped in South Central as much as it did other parts of the city? What factors were/are involved?
As for me being from Philly, yes and no are the answers. Born and raised in Delaware County, PA, which separates Philly from the state of Delaware (my stomping grounds were closer to DE than Philly). Went to college in east central PA. Moved to rural Maryland in 1985 for several reasons (crime not really being one of them). Haved lived in the Seventh State ever since except for 4 months in '86-'87 when my (eventually abortive) library career took me to Southern NJ.
So I hit the ten ring....
You get bad mumbo...
