Apostolic Church, 702 S. 22nd Street, 19146

The triangle spaces were formed as leftovers when diagonal streets end in the orthogonal grid of Center City, are a typical Philadelphian occurrence. Almost every neighborhood around Center City has them; Moyamensing, Passyunk, Ridge, Germantown, and our very own Grays Ferry. They have historical roots as they were formed typically around the outskirts of the original Center City grid where outlying roads, trails, or paths met William Penn's original city plan.

South of South Neighborhood Association (SOSNA) is pursuing a grant opportunity to create better public space and safer intersections at these Triangle spaces along Grays Ferry Avenue at South and Bainbridge Streets and we need your input!
Primary Elections

Remember, the primary election is coming up on Tuesday, May 21.  This being Philadelphia, the primary is often the election that counts.  Click or tap here to see the responses of 16 City Council candidates to a questionnaire distributed by the Crosstown Coalition.  PLEASE VOTE!
