Since we moved to Virginia in March of 2019, the Gazette has depended on news submissions from individuals and community groups. We have no reporters in Frankford to cover events. Anyone claiming to be a reporter for the Frankford Gazette is acting on their own behalf and is not, in any way, working for or with us.

WHAT I’VE BEEN TOLD
Look for the rainbow after the storm, then you’ll find a pot of gold,.
This may be a myth so I’ve been told, but this is one thing I know for sure,
When I look into my mother’s eyes passed the tears, and pass the Soul,
I know I’ll find a heart of gold.
So, don’t go chasing rainbows after the storm,
Just look into your mother’s eyes, and you’ll find she has a heart of gold.
This is what I know for sure, mothers have a heart of gold.

Neighbors were both happy and concerned when Leiper Street LLC purchased the old Frankford Y building at 4704 Leiper Street. The building had been deteriorating for years since it had closed.
When the owners, Steve Mavrakis and Steve Ostroff, appeared at the Northwood Civic Association meeting in December of 2018, they were greeted with many questions and a lot of skepticism. What were they going to do with the building. (see report about that meeting at this link.) Was it going to be an asset to the community?
The building was in poor shape at that time but in the year since, a great deal of work has been done. It is now available for lease, details at this link.
Below are some before and after pictures showing the progress of the renovations. It’s a work in progress but Steve Mavrakis said it would be done and looks like it is going in the right direction.
