    New Kensington home with rooftop firepit asks $470K
    A new home in the South/Olde Kensington neighborhood sandwiched between older rowhomes has hit the market, asking $470,000. The home at 423 W. Thompson Street is just one year old, so there's nine years left on its tax abatement. The property's real showstopper is its wrap-around rooftop deck, which features a firepit and big views back toward Center City.

We have reached our goal of 300 for the food drive. Let's concentrate on our toy donations now. Thanks for helping us out. All donated items (even the toys) will go to Feast of Justice. http://www.feastofjustice.org/

    Feast Of Justice
    Poverty doesn't distinguish between young and old, it doesn't recognize race or religion, male or female, or even working or unemployed. It is indiscriminate and spreading. The one piece that is held in common is that the people that Feast of Justice serves are our neighbors, our community, and the people we meet on the block.
