There are occasional discussions about Frankford on phillyblog.com. One running now is whether Frankford is a jewel in the northeast. That title might not be quite accurate. Frankford is a work in progress. Some posters believe Frankford is continuing to deteriorate others see signs that it is beginning to come back. It is interesting that few of the posters live in Frankford.
