"A low income area with a large rehab center"

The West Philadelphia neighborhood of Dunlap is a low income area with many residents being below the poverty line. It’s located between Haddington and Mill Creek both areas with high crime rates. Dunlap unfortunately is known for having issues with crime as well.

The property value is Dunlap is low and many of the houses are in need of repair having been neglected of abandoned for years. The streets of the neighborhood are also covered in trash in most areas.

Dunlap also has a senior housing unit which was once the historic Thomas Dunlap School from which the neighborhood gets its name. The area is accessible by public transportation which a majority of the residents utilize. The Market-Frankford line runs through the area as do several bus routes. Driving is also an option with some off street parking available.

For shopping and entertainment residents generally go further east to businesses on Market Street and South to those on Baltimore Avenue. Aside from basic corner shops in the neighborhood general shopping is done elsewhere.
KirkBride Center, a drug rehabilitation center that also focuses on mental health is also located in the Dunlap neighborhood and assists individuals throughout Philadelphia and some surrounding areas.
