Today the Archdiocese announced the closure of North Catholic at the end of this school year. I’m heart broken. Being in Frankford, it was so close I could walk it. I would start at Penn and Harrison and walk south. I’d meet John at Penn and Arrott and we’d walk the rest. At the tail end of last winter we retraced the walk we hadn’t done in twelve years, take a look here.
A few weeks ago it was so warm I retraced my walk to high school from Penn and Harrison to North Catholic at Torresdale and Hunting Park.
