A place were blacks roam the streets and jamaicans, Africans and Akis shop at 52nd street to buy and steal sneaks. Everybody wears Addidas and drinks Kool-aid. At certain times store owners close up shop and mothers hide their kids cas they know somebody is going to get shot each day. The El runs through West Philly to Center City. All the White people get off before the El reaches 52nd street.
"I'm in West Philly"
"Ard, don't get shot again".

Occurs in late spring when college students at Penn and Drexel leave unwanted furniture, appliances, etc. on the street after moving out for the summer. Once the students leave, West Philly residents come in and "shop" for new stuff.
Dude, are you going to put your couch in storage over the summer?

Nah, I'm just gonna leave it on the curb for West Philly Christmas.
