Mostly inhabited by blacks, puerto ricans, junkies of all races, and poor asians. well, actually, everyone who lives there is well under the poverty line. One of the poorest and most impoverished areas in PA and NJ.
Crime ridden. Murders, rapes, drug pushing, assaults, robberies, weapon sales, prostitution, ect happen every 2 seconds in Kensington. It is extremely dangerous there, proceed with caution!
I know firsthand. I lived on the streets there for a pretty long time when I was addicted to heroin and working as a trick.
The corner of C and Clearfield streets in Kensington is usually infested with cops, but pretty reliable for having the best dope (ecko, viagra, kangol, cvs, just some examples of the stamp bags there)
Sloane no. 2: "What a good idea, I went to Sloane Square yesterday so I'd really rather go to Ken High St."
I love K-town it's such a heart-warming place
