you need to keep doing these blogs. i find it very interesting because i have been clean for quite a while now but a few years ago i was basically one of these people myself.. i live 3 hrs away from philly but i went to rehab and i ended up getting sent to a halfway house in upper darby. why they would send me to “recover” in philadelphia, the dope capital of the world, i have no idea. i could just get it more readily available and way cheaper than where i came from. so i only lasted 2 weeks in that halfway house before i found my way down to kensington ave and somerset and i got kicked out of the halfway house that day. i spent another couple months basically living on the ave and in and out of peoples apartments that would let me stay a night or two or however long. so looking @ this blog just gives me quite the mix of emotions.. both good & bad. please keep doing this. people that have never been to north phily.. down to the kensington area and the badlands.. have no idea what it is truely like. there are all these resports on the news about third world countries and poverty and shit.. well look right under your fucking nose. that area is a third world country in itself.. an open air drug market.. prostitution.. etc. it’s ridiculous. but that life is like nothing else i have ever experienced down there. for how bad and terrible things are, i still find myself missing that atmosphere. anyways, please keep doing this. thank you and god bless to all those still on the ave. and feel free to wriet me if you’d like
