The Northwood Civic meeting last night was attended by about 30 people who had heard about the Volunteers of America house becoming occupied on Christmas Eve. NEastPhilly.com did a great job of covering that angle and you can read their report and see the video here.
The former location of the Thrifty Scott beer distributor on Castor Avenue near Wingohocking is under construction. Possible tenants for the building are a dialysis center that would move over from the Cancer Treatment Center. Another potential tenant is looking at the facility. Both will make a presentation to the Civic with details of their plans.
