    Why some Philly neighborhoods attract creative eateries, and some don't | Craig LaBan
    Reader: Your review of Cadence sounds terrific, but how do South Kensington and Fishtown get so many interesting eats and the Graduate Hospital/Fitler Square area so few? Craig LaBan: You've touched on an ongoing mystery to me, as well: Why, of all the fast-evolving neighborhoods, has the Graduate Hospital/Fitler zone accumulated so many underwhelming, unadventurous places?

Check out this awesome walking tour form our Historical Society!

    The King's Highway | Tacony Tour
    The Tacony Tour provides a unique window into the historic Tacony neighborhood and it's significance along the King's Highway. The original inhabitants of this area were the Lenni Lenape American Indians. The name Tacony is derived from the Lenni Lenape word Towacawonick, which means "woods" or "uninhabited place."

    The Importance (and Neglect) of America's 'Middle Neighborhoods'
    When a neighborhood isn't rich -- and isn't poor -- government tends to forget about it.
