They will have ZERO stores to shop..........they will have to travel in to the nice neighborhoods to get their booze and smokes

They'll try to force the businesses to stay. That's what they did in the shitty part of my city. After two grocery stores had failed because of crime and low shopper turnout, the second company let everyone know they were leaving. The city took them to court and tried to put immense amount of social pressure on them. Claimed the area would become a food desert and the company had a responsibility to the community. They still just left. Shop is still empty a year or so later.

This is probably the plan. Get the nignog circus to become a traveling act and "enrich" a wider region. Why should West Philadelphia get all the fun?

That's also why public transportation is such a goal.
