More Description

In the early part of the twentieth century, as traditional communities in Philadelphia that had been swallowed up by the Consolation Act of 1854 grew more dense, an area known as Northeast Philadelphia came into its own.
Development of Roosevelt Boulevard, the Market-Frankford Elevated Railway, and the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge facilitated access to large swaths of undeveloped land. Lower Northeast Philadelphia focuses on the area following the path of the Delaware River north to the city limits at the Poquessing Creek and also along and between the Frankford and Pennypack Creeks. Most of Northeast Philadelphia developed much later than the rest of the city, but the area now possesses the same "town of neighborhoods" feel each with a unique character and history.
