A very fucked up area on the east side of North Philly which is known as the Badlands. Mostly home to Black, Purto Rican, and Irish people. This neighborhood is jam packed with Heroin and Crack. People who live there are incredible fighters and can fuck you up. At night time there is crack heads, pushers, thugz,and mad gun shots. Police need to have 2 cops in the car when driving through it or they will be pulled out and fucked up.
some kid from chestnuthill got off the bus in Kensington and was beated, stabbed and robbed.

A very VERY dangerous area of North Philly. The best and most reliable place in the tristate area to pick up really decent heroin, crack, powder coke, benzos, suboxone, needles, weapons, prostitutes or whatever else you might need.

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.
If you want the best dope around, skip Camden and head to Kensington.

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)

A long ass road in philly. if you turn on to kensington, turn right the fuck back off. the stop lights have been rigged so that you will hit EVERY red light; thus provided that every stop has a 95% PROBABILITY of loosing your car. if you make it from the begining to the end... its probably the winter time and too cold for the gang baggers to jack your shit.
yo man i got off the betsy ross bridge last night and wound up on kensington. i never saw no shit like that before in my life. homies shootin craps, pit bull fights. and of course a crew of about 8 brothas on every fucking corner with a 40 of colt 45 in their back pocket.

One of the many wealthy towns in MoCo. Yet unlike in Potomac, K-Towners don't flaunt what they have and instead live in a nice, cute, family town. While most of it is nice, there is the area that should be Wheaton.
Do you live in the nice part of KTown or the Wheaton part between Conn. Ave. and University Blvd?

Rich suburb just outside DC where the soccer mom thrives. Home of the Academy of the Holy Cross and a lot of expensive antique stores.

A small place, known as a town, right outside bethesda. it includes a "skate park," one good restraunt (you know which one im talking about), and the cheapest gas for miles. It is a hassle to get to anywhere important from kensington because it is so small. also known as: "k-town" "right outside DC" and "where?"
Cheap Rich Boy with the mercedes: yo i need gas, but its so expensive!
Ktown Boy: Lets go to Kensington! its only $2.34 there!
