"Very rundown area now"

As with many places in North Philadelphia, this street used to be very nice in the 1940s, but the houses are now rundown and many are boarded up. The people who still live there tend to be older people who often sit out on the front porch during the day in the warm weather. so you are bound to have people saying hi as you walk by in the summer. Sydenham is near Broad Street so it's close to public transportation. The location isn't great but if you work in Center City, it will only take you about 20 mins to get to work. Or if you are a nurse at Temple Hospital, you could be there in the same amount of time.

Unfortunately, the neighborhood has been riddled with crime lately and many of the homes have metal bars on the windows and doors for safety. The houses are probably only selling for $30-$40k if that. As a result, the people who live there tend to be lower-class. Also, the area is not good for children because there aren't any lawns or play areas other then the sidewalks or street, which is extremely narrow.
