I (kind of) disagree with that. We either take the Riverline from Palmyra down into Camden or drive in to attend concerts in the summer at Wiggins Park. For free concerts it's great - blues, jazz, etc. and the crowd is there for the music.
I definitely would be very wary in other places or times in the city, but the waterfront and Riverline is not bad. I've see it worse in other cities that just don't have the reputation.
