Fair Hill Burial Ground - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
2901 Germantown Avenue
Fair Hill Burial Ground is a 5 acre Quaker cemetery that is more than 300 years old. It looks quite nice, but I couldn’t get inside, since it was locked-up. I felt very uncomfortable to be carrying a $5500 camera in this North Philadelphia neighborhood, alone. I got in and got out - quickly.
As I tried to leave the area, I pulled up to a corner where it appeared local drug dealers thought I might be a customer. It appeared one was anticipating that a transaction was about to take place. Man, I totally did not belong in that neighborhood.
Of all the cemeteries I visited in the 5 county Philadelphia area, I felt the most uncomfortable here.
