My Love Note: For starters, the thing I love most about Northeast Philly has to be Pennypack Park. I remember growing up as a child and having barbecues at the Pine Road section of the park. I still enjoy riding my bicycle in the park. It’s like a home away from home. I always enjoy going to the park to take photographs of the beautiful trees, ducks, flowers, and any other wild life I may come across.
I also love our rich Northeast culture. Sometimes I wonder where I would like to purchase my first home, but I think I’ve know all along. I’d like to live either in my current neighborhood of Foxchase or a little further up by Grant and Bustleton Avenue. Either way, I’m staying in the Northeast for sure. I LOVE it here and you should too.
Northeast: isn’t it a beautiful place to live and work!
