What do you not see in this picture? Trash on the street. That block is littered with paper and empty drink bottles today. Why? Well people are lazy and drop things right where they stand. Don’t blame anybody else. It’s the people who walk up and down that street.
It seems like Phillyblog is the only place to get an idea of what is going on at the Northwood Civic Association. Might be worthwhile attending the meeting on June 19th to see what is going to happen. http://www.phillyblog.com/philly/showthread.php?t=38630
The Daily News today published a great piece on Frankford Avenue today with some very nice compliments to Frankford (the Next Great Neighborhood). Read it here while it is still available. Links are in Phillyblog http://www.phillyblog.com/philly/showthread.php?t=38566

Citizenship is the American ideal. There may be an army of actualities opposed to that ideal, but there is no ideal opposed to that ideal.” –G.K. Chesterton
More interesting activity at the Northwood Civic Association seems to be afoot. Looks like a power struggle but I have no direct knowledge so I probably should just shut up. Read about it in the Phillyblog.
