Better known as The Swimmo, the pool at Montgomery Avenue and Moyer Street has seen better days.

The good news is, Fishtowners won’t completely melt away this summer. Parks and Rec recommends going to Cione Pool, 2600 E. Aramingo Ave., or Hancock Pool, 1401 N. Hancock St., instead.

    Why Fishtown's Swimmo is closed for the summer
    The neighborhood public pool needs an overhaul When Philly's Department of Parks and Recreation announced public pool opening dates earlier this week, one was conspicuously missing. A small note at the bottom, once you scroll past the list of 70-plus pools says, "Lederer Pool will be closed this season for necessary structural and mechanical repairs."

In 1958, Oh’s cousin was murdered by a gang of young men who swarmed and beat him to death at 36th and Hamilton streets. The 26-year-old graduate student at University of Pennsylvania was walking to a mailbox across the street from his home to send a letter to his parents in Korea.

Powelton Village: Five Churches Supporting the Community

The Metropolitan Baptist Church is located at 3500 Baring St., along what is informally regarded as the religious row of the neighborhood. The Metro just celebrated its 85th anniversary in April.

...Church is another staple of the Powelton community, as the cornerstone for the church at 3600 Baring St. was first laid in October of 1865. The current building was finished in 1883 and...

Tyree AME is yet another enduring institution in the area, as the roots of the church date back to April of 1913 at their original location at 3832 Haverford Ave. The parish moved to its current spot on the corner of 38th and Hamilton in 1941.

The hip, non-denominational parish of the Powelton church cluster is led by Pastor Emile Stanton. If you enjoy passionate, entertaining, and endearing sermons rife with music and engaging tangents about hot dogs and beans, get over to the Revelation Center at 3727 Baring St. on Sunday mornings.
