Coming to you from world headquarters just steps off the Avenue, we here at the Passyunk Post will serve as your guide, newshound, clairvoyant and arbiter of taste for all South Philly has to offer. Because let’s face it, this neighborhood has been on the rise for more than five years, but now it’s about to really take off.
Ever since moving to the neighborhood nearly 10 years ago – back when the Cantina was Ozzie’s and Stogie Joe’s was the signless and slightly scary Passyunk Tavern – we’ve been peeking through paper-covered windows and bugging clueless work crews with pesky questions. We briefly considered calling this site the Passyunk Prowler before realizing that the name could instill more fear than curiosity. Still, all that harmless stalking was good practice and now it’s put to good use.
We eat, sleep and breathe the ‘hood, and we’ve grown past our initial obsession with East Passyunk to now include everything south of South Street. So, enjoy, and feel free to send tips, suggestions, criticism or other thoughts to email@example.com.
