Another Week, Another Issue the Gazette is Late On

This is going to be a running joke, I can feel it.  Just a week after I whine about us being the last to find out about the conversion of the Frankford Day Nursery into another Recovery House, we already have another one in the pipeline.  Apparently there’s some halfway house action happening at the corner of Griscom and Church.  And it’s pretty apparent from the comments that follow the post that there are other residents that know more about it than we do.  We at the Gazette are not really journalists, and we cannot do this alone.

If you know of shenanigans going on in Frankford, why don’t you just mosy on over to our message board and post it, it’s right here.  It’s pretty anonymous, post gossip if you like.  And if you don’t know anything about the bad stuff, do something even better and post some good stuff.  I have never met a resident of Frankford that didn’t find something interesting, or from whom I was not able to learn more about it’s past.

I did this last week and got an awesome response.  I learned about Overington Manor and Leandros Pizza.  Go over and tell me something new this week.

    I really like your site, and your commitment to the neighborhood, and your efforts to get a community bulletin board going. I wonder if you’ve talked to Dan Roth, who began and moderates the Fishtown.us website: its been going for 5 years now and is as strong as ever — you might ask him what he did to get it up and going back in the beginning…

    Good luck!

    I’m absolutely aware of Dan Roth and fishtown.us. His site and northernliberties.org are the examples I’ve followed with this stuff. I think they really show that in this day and age you really can’t have a community without an online presence. And personally, I wouldn’t want to live in a place that didn’t have one. So that’s why we take the time with this. It’s as much for non residents as it is for residents. We’re trying to tell the outside world that there are people that are here, that care. And maybe those people will chose to come and make this place better with us.
