Representation of Philadelphia, PA

In class Wednesday we had researched a major city for each group. My group had chosen Philadelphia. We have found 2 negative articles, 2 positive articles, and crime stats comparing Philadelphia and Detroit. We have also found some pictures and we were given another website in Friday's class.

2 Positive Articles
"Got a gun? Turn it in, get Sixers tickets."
"Cherished Rink Still on its Feet"
2 Negative Articles
"2 Men Sentenced in S. Philadelphia Crossburning"
"School Teacher Makes Deal to Avoid Sex Trial"
(All four articles are from www.philly.com from the Philadelphia
