"Stay classy, Rising Sun"

Rising Sun-Tiago is a neighborhood located in North Philadelphia. Adjacent to Nicetown, Rising Sun-Tiago is bound by Broad Street to the east, Allegheny Avenue to the south, Roberts Avenue to the northwest and Wingohocking Street to the north.
The area is made up of mostly lower income African American residents however many Hispanics and Asian Americans are moving into the area. Rising Sun-Tiago suffers from extreme poverty and as a result, has a high crime rate and a lot of abandoned and dilapidated houses. Most of the neighborhood is extremely dirty and you wouldn’t want to be caught walking in the streets after dark.
Rising Sun-Tiago is an extremely affordable place to live in, but I do not recommend trying to find a home there. The neighborhood offers many row homes and a couple of apartment complexes, but most of the housing facilities you find there aren’t in the best shape.
Back in the day, Hunting Park used to be an area draw for summer concerts and other outdoor events, but that’s long gone. The residents of Rising Sun-Tiago have tried to beautify the neighborhood, but they still have a long way to go.
Rising Sun-Tiago has potential. It just needs a lot of TLC.
