Drug corner update: where are Philadelphia’s worst corners?

    The worst drug corner in Philadelphia? You’ll find that at Kensington and Somerset.

    That’s about as surprising as a Phillies win or the Ackerman buyout.

    Something you might be interested to know, though, is that some of the worst corners in the city are concentrated in North Philadelphia. The top 10, in fact.

    Philly Weekly teamed up with Phawker to reprise a 2007 report about Philadelphia’s drug corners, taking stock of where the activity is in 2011. You can lead the lengthy report here, complete with a photo gallery and the top 10 list.

    There’s much more to the story than the list.
