Port Richmond is an affordable area, and its really close to several big box stores that will be affordable for families. I'd like to see the area serve as a vanguard/bulwark pushing against Kensington.

It's been a pretty stable area forever.

People will say gentrification, but honestly the alternative is far worse.

Yep! It could be K&A.

It's not K&A that I'm only worried about. No. Not just that. I'm thinking about what happens to the people who own homes in the area if something like that comes to Port Richmond. Every single family that owns a home there will be basically trapped. They will be unable to sell their home and move because their homes will be worthless. Their QOL will vanish. They'll be subject to crime and the city won't care.
