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"
