Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm currently starting up with a consulting firm, and one of the sites they're offering me a short to mid term job at is in Camden. While it's a great job with absurdly good pay the obvious problem is, you know, it's Camden. The specific site is just a bit on the river side of N South Freeway, about half a mile south of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. The area looks decent enough on Google's street view, but I'd like any information and opinions people who know the area might have.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but just how concerned should I be about the city's reputation? The waterfront district is supposed to have become less shitty, but this place is about a mile inland and all the information I can find on the city still leads with "Seriously, don't go out at night."
And if the area isn't completely Escape from New York, how feasible is commuting over from Philly each morning? There seem to be some amazing apartments only a couple of miles drive away, but who knows how atrocious traffic could be in and out of Camden.
Any information or even general feelings for the area could be a huge help.
