    Community Meeting Tonight for Point Breeze Luncheonette
    A construction fence appeared last summer at the southeast corner of 20th & Reed, a corner that's been vacant for quite some time. We were pleased to tell you about plans for a mixed-use building at the corner and a home next door, but we weren't exactly confident that a retail tenant would rush into a lease at this location.

    The Battle for the Soul of Washington Avenue
    Washington Avenue is not a Market Street or a Broad Street or even a Baltimore Avenue. The New York Times has never recommended, as it did with Passyunk Avenue, that tourists spend a sunny weekend there to check out the cafés and twee boutiques.

    Well... I should preface that a little bit better. Guess who filed the lawsuit? Oh yes, this blog's favorite anti-development protestor Theresa McCormick of Concerned Citizens of Point Breeze is at it again with a taxpayer-funded lawsuit filed in forma pauperis, which is a mechanism meant for prisoners and the abject poor to file lawsuits of redress (Theresa here isn't poor.

Neighborhood Spotlight: Point Breeze

Located at the corner of 22nd and Ellsworth is Keith Haring’s famous mural, “We the Youth.” Originally completed in 1987, the project resulted from a collaboration between Haring and CityKids Foundation, a New York based youth organization.

    Neighborhood Spotlight: Point Breeze | Philly PR Girl
    In some of the less glittering city intersections located between 25th and Broad Street exist a few of Philly's hidden jewels - all of which call the up-and-coming neighborhood of Point Breeze home. Originally named for its idyllic location along the west side of the Schuylkill River, today the neighborhood has been affectionately deemed "The Breeze" by its loyal, local population.
