How IT looks in Tha Bottom

I was in the section of West Philly today known as "THA BOTTOM".
Now all residents...or at least those that "really know" Philly, know that ... it's not a joke down there ......
This is that section of the city where .... even uneasiness is felt from the surrounding buildings..or what remains of them lining the streets
Here's where "Swagga" means... I'm "bout it bout it" or "I'm not"......
Grimy... as the young folk would say.
I was transfixed by this image I snapped....and trust me, I was transfixed by ALOT of things I saw "down there"

Interesting picture. Isn't it interesting how every city has a "Bottom". I grew up in a small TN town and we had one..still do.

I used to live not too far from here and know some stories that would go with this picture. It makes me sad. I wish you would post more photos though.

Clouds..thank you for that comment. I plan on going back there to take some pics. The two or three I managed to take doesn't even begin to show the despair in that area.

Anissa... I kind of suspected this wasn't just a "Philly" thing, and every where in the world has "a bottom"
