I attended the meeting concerning the current planning stage of the new park to be located where Orthodox meets the Delaware River. Many of us would like this park to be named Point-No-Point Park. Representatives from Langan Engineering asked about this name. Wikipedia has a good article about the name of this area in colonial times. Read the story here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridesburg,_Philadelphia#Point-No-Point --Mike Finn

    Bridesburg, Philadelphia - Wikipedia
    Bridesburg, the northernmost of Philadelphia's River Wards, is a river-front neighborhood in the Northeast section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Bridesburg is an historically German and Irish community, with a significant community of Polish immigrants who arrived mostly in the early- to mid-twentieth century.

Hello! Do you know who administers the cemetery next to the old All Saints Church? I have ancestors buried there (Stegmenn, Keller, Gensheimer, Williman) and I'd love to go in and visit their graves. The last time I was in Philly though, the gate was locked. I wasn't sure if I should call the SJC parish office or the Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery office next time I'm in town.
