Being a Philly resident born and raised since the 80s, I know Philly! Raised in the heart of North Philly before Temple took over, I have seen the beauty of urban living first hand. The eclectic nature of every hood of Philly is truly unique and has been carved via blood, sweat, drug wars and tears of its occupants. Philly's overall personality is very raw but few hoods have held on their grittiness post gentrification. I will give you the uncut story of my experiences overcoming many obstacles and now thriving in this one of a kind city.
