Favorite Spot: Northeast Philly

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!

    Wow. This is a side of Northeast Philly I have completely failed to experience. Need to fix that right away!

    Hello Brian
    I am not on facebook or other social media sites. I heard you started a petition regarding the apartment building complex in Fox Chase on Rhawn St. I need to sign this petition and can help you to obtain signatures. How can I get this petition?
    Thank you
