I’m a huge fan of the online magazine Metropolis. Ever since they actually did an in depth 4 part series that did more than just rehash the same old Frankford. I’m also a huge fan of Temple’s journalism school, and in particular, it’s students that have covered Frankford. Morgan Zalot has covered Frankford’s main street program for Temple’s Urban Reporting Lab.
Usually I’d just throw this into our Friday Frankford links since she interviewed him at Overington Park but there he in a couple pictures WATERING MY TREE. I say it’s mine CAUSE I PLANTED IT. I didn’t do it by myself, my wife helped.
The wife and I(ok some kids helped too) planted the three trees in the semicircle by Pilling Street in November of 2008 during a greenify Overington Park day speerheaded by Hasan of Northeast Tree Tenders. I’m very attached to these trees. When we drive by, we always say “those are our trees” and since the mrs and I planted them in the first six months of our marriage, they grow as our love grows. I envision a future where Frankford is awesome and our kids are frolicking in Overington Park and the trees are tall as balls and it’s just gonna be great.
You do a great job Hasan, you too Morgan, you’re welcome in Frankford anytime.
