The Great Northeast and the Riverwards are a huge section of the city full of distinct neighborhoods, great food, and expanses of parks.

Start your day off right with donuts, specifically, plum jelly-filled Paczki from Krakus Market, a Polish market in Port Richmond which also contains within its walls the delicious Staropolska restaurant.

I am: a Jersey-born, Philly-phlavored web-dev student at Montgomery County Community College, lover of food, Philadelphia sports and yarn. Oh, and I blog.
Years in Philly: this is debatable. I grew up in NJ but spent a lot of time with family here in Philly. I wish I could say I’ve been here my whole life, but in actual time, I’ve been here almost 2 years collectively. I wasn’t far over the bridge though.
Current Home: Tacony/Wissinoming, though I am a stone’s throw from Mayfair
