    I'm Harrahs Diamond. I am taking an early flight from Philly to Tampa. Was thinking about going to Harrahs, playing a bit then taking an Uber to Airport. I will be gone 6 days. Then hitting the Casino on my way home again. Do you think there would be a problem leaving my car in Diamond parking for 6 days? I don't want to come back to find it towed. Thanks, I usually go to AC, never been here before

    I don't know about that, Chester and the area near Harrah's is not the greatest neighborhoods to be around or parking a car for a lengthy period of time. Me myself I would not do it for the fact that I would be worried the whole time that the vehicle would be towed or something worse. I believe if you drive up towards the airport to where the hotels are located there are a bunch of $5.00 per day lots that offer good shuttle service to the airport.

    I went there once for a few hours while I was in the Philly area. It's in the middle of nowhere in an industrial area. I didn't love walking through the parking garage. There's no hotel, so for 6 days, yeah, I'd be a little concerned it'd get towed or worse unless I knew for a fact it wouldn't be.

    I went to Chester, PA once for a pro soccer game at the stadium in town. The town is a dangerous hellhole. Locals were protesting with signs outside the stadium, because their politicians had given tax money to the stadium developers and the people had no grocery stores in their entire town. The last grocery store closed due to rampant shoplifting. There are very high rates of violence in that town. Makes Atlantic City look like Mayberry by comparison.

    I did notice.... as I left last summer while in Philly for Dem Nat Convention. There's gotta be better places to leave your car.

    would respectfully disagree with prior posters-------go there 4 or 5 times a week-------they have excellent security inside the casino as well as outside on the grounds and in the parking lot areas-----the harrahs complex is like an island to itself------far enough away from the local residents[not within walking distance] and surrounded on 4 sides by 1-the Delaware river to the east 2-a prison complex to the west as well as 2 rail lines [1 freight and 1 passenger] along with highway 291--- 3-an industrial complex to the south 4-a wooded area and a creek which borders the borough of eddystone to the north-------parking in the diamond area is an added plus-----cost on the airport parking lots comes closer to $10 a day when you add in state taxes and airport surcharge fees-----you appear to have a good plan,go for it----
