Lynch said of Philly, “It’s the sickest, most corrupt, decaying, fear-ridden city imaginable. I was very poor and living in the bad areas. I felt like I was constantly in danger. But it was so fantastic at the same time.” Much of what he said is not flattering, but Lynch lived in the area between 1966 and 1970, and since then the neighborhood, known by fans as Eraserhood, has greatly improved, developing into one of the more trendy areas in the city. However, if it inspired him to make “Eraserhead”, I suppose I can take a little criticism.
