They like us. They really, really like us!

We’re honored to announce that the website City Eats named Albert Stumm, founder and editor of Passyunk Post, part of “The Ten: On the rise in Philly food.”

Freelancer Drew Lazor, a former City Paper writer, compiled the list, which also included shoutouts for Becca O’Brien, chef of the house-made products at Green Aisle GroceryWill’s Christopher Kearse, Robert Toland, Pastry Chef, Stateside and six others with no South Philly connection (we call them outsiders). Here’s some of what he said about us:

An assistant city editor at the Philadelphia Daily News, Albert Stumm works nights, leaving his days free to do what he does best. “I’m nosy, so I’m always peeking in windows,” says the South Phillyite, who purchased a house on Camac Street in 2006, well before nearby East Passyunk Avenue exploded. He’s parlayed this natural curiosity for his surroundings into The Passyunk Post, a city blog covering the goings-on in his ever-booming neighborhood.

So in the interest of returning the favor, Passyunk Post would like to name Lazor as the Top 1 writer who has interviewed us. Congratulations, Drew! But seriously, thanks. It’s an honor.

Sounding a call for contributors

How much do you like South Philly? If it’s so much that you want to tell lots of people about it, then you should contribute to the Passyunk Post.

We’d like to expand past our traditional boundaries of East Passyunk and dip our toes more often into Pennsport, Newbold, Point Breeze and LoMo, and we need some help doing that through your short stories and photo essays. You’ll get some exposure for your work, we’ll get some help increasing our coverage area and our readers get more information. Everybody wins.To get more information about writing for us or submitting photo essays, email us at Please include a paragraph about yourself and why you think you’re right for us. Feel free to include anything that might get our attention, like previous writing/photography experience.
A few caveats (there’s always something, right?). You must live or work in South Philly, you should know the subjects we already cover – development, food, events, quality of life and other city-living issues – and you should be a curious person who has plenty of ideas on what to write about. Also, no real estate pros, sorry.
Send us an email post haste and we’ll be sure to get back to you right away. Thanks.
