Yo, Data is an occasional feature by tech whiz and South Philly resident Angela Minster, in which she crunches the numbers and makes ‘em all nice and pretty. Know of any data sets you can customize to South Philly? Let us know at email@example.com.
Last time, we looked at roof deck permits in South Philly for the last seven years. We found that Graduate Hospital had by far the most roof decks added (both in total and as a proportion of buildings in the neighborhood). This week we looked at how South Philly neighborhoods stack up compared to the rest of the city.
Roof Decks Added per 100 Residences by Neighborhood Since 2007
The neighborhood that has added the most roof decks (as a proportion of all residential buildings) over the last seven years is the Francisville neighborhood (east of Fairmont and west of Broad), followed by West Poplar (East of Broad from Francisville) and Graduate Hospital. HALF of the top ten neighborhoods are South Philly neighborhoods.
