Coming to you from world headquarters just steps off world-famous East Passyunk 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.
We eat, sleep and breathe the ‘hood, and since we launched in July 2012, we’ve grown past our initial obsession with East Passyunk to now cover news, restaurants, development, retail, events and overall city living everywhere south of South Street.
Apparently, South Philly loves it. We’ve built this website from a little hobby blog into the neighborhood’s best news source, with nearly 40,000 unique visitors a month as of March 2016, and well over a million pageviews a year.
So, enjoy, and feel free to send tips, suggestions, criticism or other thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
