Well, let’s see

Trusty Indian head, guide us well

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 that “downtown” 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 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 will be put to good use.

We’re going to eat, sleep and breathe the ‘hood, focusing on Passyunk Square and EPX – which are deemed a collective “East Passyunk” from here on out. Sometimes, we may venture out to the wilds of Newbold and Pennsport, or even above Washington Avenue if we’re feeling frisky.

So, enjoy, and feel free to send tips, suggestions, criticism or other thoughts to punk@passyunkpost.com.
