Hi I wanted to speak my mind on philly sucks I like the web it’s nice and I’m glad I’m not alone. I love Philadelphia but over the years I have seen how we are losing value in each other every day. We are more concerned with materialism than each other. There’s no unity, love, our morals are gone. The education system is bad the higher education here cost alot for nothing. Our water is dirty got all kinds of chemicals that the mayor don’t even want to fight to keep our city cleaned. There is flouride in our water the other flouride which is sodium flouride that causes all kinds of diseases that health professionals here are making a living off of us being sick and having bad dental issues or other issues caused by this chemical called flouride. There is no independence here no more jobs are gone that’s why people are signing up for free handouts. We need a make over until then I see myself living in a clean environment.

Please post this….

Love your website! Please post this:

I was born in Philadelphia, but moved far away in my 20′s for almost a 10 years, and now that I’m back in Philadelphia, I can honestly say that I’m truly disappointed and disgusted in Philadelphia and one day I will leave again for good.

What people are saying on this website is all true. Philadelphia is going down the drain. Back in the 70′s, and further back, Philadelphia use to be made up of working class blue collar people who took pride in their communities, but today, many working blue collar jobs are gone, and people from the old generation/guard either moved, or died. So now, unfortunately, many areas have just fell to pieces and in many parts of the city (pretty much everywhere!) illegal drugs have moved in, particularly, heroin.

And aside from the drugs, the city is depressing as there are so many buildings and homes that are dilapidated and trash is everywhere. Add in all the crime, then there is no point in leaving your home. Hell, many students I have spoken to who went to Temple each and every one of them was robbed at some point during their college years.

As far as people, I don’t know why, but, Philadelphians are a very rude and nasty group of people who take kindness for a weakness. People from Philly seem to take pleasure in being rude to people for no reason and it stretches all the way out into the suburbs. People don’t smile or nothing, and people give you these blank cold stares. It’s part of the culture now, so Philly needs to be refereed to as the “city of hate” from now on because that’s all people do around here.

Also, I meet so many people from Philly that have no life and no personality. People here just lack charisma and are dead to me. Just walking zombies no matter how well they seem to be doing in life.. All people do in Philly is work, obsess about about sports, and obsess over their own personal boring family life. No matter how old people are around here most Philadelphians have no idea that life even exist outside of philly because they have never even visited the next state over, let alone visited other exotic counties full of rich and ancient culture like I have.

In the end, Philly is dying and everything is going to go from bad to WORSE if things don’t change anytime soon! Philly needs a massive injection of art, culture, hope, inspiration, a once over with a bulldozer in the crime ridden areas, and young people who will lay off the drugs and will work hard to rebuild their communities to get back to pre 1950′s success/status.

Unfuckingbelievable!
From 2nd and south st I dare you to try to get on 95 south to get to the airport.
Winding down Delaware ave and then through toilet neighborhoods without a single sign for 50 minutes to go 5 blocks to finally get on the highway that’s right above you the whole time separating all life from what could be a nice waterfront so by the time you get out you feel like you escaped some fucking hell by pure chance. Awful. People honking at everyone, in a constant state of traffic anxiety I guess.

Not a fucking chance I would ever say “hey why don’t we go shopping on south street, grab a bite, and enjoy the city?”. Ever. Not worth it.

Might be the worst planning I’ve ever seen for a city with a waterfront.

Philly sucks.

The type of person who uses time and energy to create a website for the purpose of expounding why something sucks—sucks himself. Learn to do something worthwhile, dude.

If anyone here knows how to get the hell out of this shithole, please post it. After 20 miserable years living here and trying to maintain my sanity, I’ve finally had it.
I’m ready to move on but don’t know where rent is cheap and there aren’t any assholes and self-serving pieces of shit.
There has got to be a community in the US with a considerate, respectful and afable people who don’t litter the strees, don’t run red lights or use yelling as a mode of communication.
My regret is not getting out before my first, second or third heart attacks. I’m a young guy and have a few years left to live and I want to do it in a decent place, where there are trees and where I dont hav to worry about getting held up every day.

Thanks for this site and all the good work.

Fuck Philly right in the ass with the large end of the Liberty Bell

Hey,

After coming across this site, I was happy to discover that I’m not the only who despises Killadelphia. I moved to this shitbox of a city for a job four years ago and honestly, I’m done. I’m looking for a new job and getting out of this cesspool before I turn in to one of these whitetrash cheese steak-munching fuck sticks in a XXXXL Eagles hoodie.

This city is devoid of culture, manners and any desire to better itself. Everyone living here could have rickets and foot growing out of their asshole and they wouldn’t care. As long as (Philly sports team of the season) is winning it’s all ok. I was as at a Phillies game once and during a rain delay they showed the arena football championships on the big screen. The Philadelphia Soul won the championship and the entire fucking stadium explodes screaming “World Champions! World Champions!”. Three days later I saw a billboard for the Philly Soul advertising SEASON tickets for $49. Are you fucking kidding me?

Fuck the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, 76ers and every douchebag in a jersey that can’t stop booing like a crybaby every time they lose a game.

In the past four years, I’ve stepped in human shit on the street, been hit by a drunk cab driver and had a dude start pissing in the same urinal as me at a bar. This city sucks so bad that it’s cops literally once dropped a bomb on some of its citizens. All I have to say is that they should have used a bigger bomb.

Philly is the city where hope goes to get gang raped behind Geno’s Steaks. And speaking of the illustrious cheese steak. Hey Philadelphia, it’s cheese and steak on bread…not the goddamn Mona Lisa. Get over your fucking selves.

If North Korea wants to shoot missiles at the U.S., I hope they aim for Philly.
