'He forgot where he came from': Is support for Mayor Kenney fading in his old South Philly neighborhood?

South Philly “rowhome” voters, some of them moderate and conservative Democrats, were a key part of that coalition. Kenney grew up on the 300 block of Cantrell, joined the Jokers Mummers Brigade, and was longtime chief-of-staff to former State Sen. Vince Fumo.

    'He forgot where he came from': Is support for Mayor Kenney fading in his old South Philly neighborhood?
    Tommy West was sitting at the bar with a few friends at Mifflin Tavern on Second Street in South Philadelphia, with the Phillies game on in the background. The team was winning. But what West really wanted to talk about was basketball.

Northeast Bakery Returns to South Philly Roots

The exterior of the soon-to-be second location of Lipkin’s Bakery at 2153 South Hancock St. | Facebook/Lipkin’s Bakery

While it’s technically a new location, it’s not a new neighborhood for the kosher bakery, which will still uphold kosher standards. Its original location before it moved to Rhawnhurst 43 years ago was at Fourth and McKean streets.

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

When Lipkin moved the bakery to its 8013 Castor Ave. location in 1975, most of the Jews near the original spot had moved.

    Northeast Bakery Returns to South Philly Roots - Jewish Exponent
    If you live in Northeast Philly and find yourself in need of a good rye bread or challah, or perhaps some rugelach or hamantaschen, or maybe you just have a hankering for some cookies, chances are you'd head over to Lipkin's Bakery. Well, soon, if you live in South Philadelphia, you'll get that chance, too ...

Parking

Is there anywhere in Philly to securely park a small 10" moving truck overnight?

  • From the sounds of it, you want to pay an indoor garage to do so. there are two in the 1500 block of Latimer that I know of, plenty of others in town too.

There's something I want to bring up... folks we need to stay more aware of our surroundings at all times. If you are driving you need to stay off the phone it is the law!! I'm not saying this is what caused this to happen but at the same time it could be a great Factor in the death of this young man. Always look both ways before crossing the street. Take a double look if needed. You need to be the eyes for other people and this is very unfortunate. The people that want to talk on the phone and text on the phone while operating a motor vehicle are the ones we need to watch. Let's start looking for one another. I'm very upset that this has happened in our neighborhood. once again to the family hopefully you do not take this as an insult. I do want to say I'm really sorry for your loss Anthony Boris- Founder-CAOSP Community Liaison 3rd Police District Advisory Council #CAOSP #Unity
