Abandoned homes, and urban blight are a huge problem in the city of Philadelphia. This article published by Philly.com about 6 months ago, highlights how gentrification, and urban blight go hand-in-hand. Philadelphia is a city that is constantly changing. Our population is increasing, while our supply of commercial and residential spaces struggles to rise to meet demand.
By recognizing the problem of urban blight, we can report it, and do something about it. I, personally, would like to see Philadelphia become a city that we can all take pride in. Not just a city of socially stratified neighborhoods.
