Vare Washington is trying to bring musical theater back to their school! Performance will be this May, and open to the public. Please consider a donation to help purchase costumes, lighting, props, and the rights to the musical itself. Any amount will help achieve this goal!

    Bring Back Our Musical! by Zachary Duberstein
    Prior to the merger of Abigail Vare and George Washington Schools, George Washington was known for putting on amazing musical performances; lighting, elaborate costumes, choreographed dance and song routines, the works! Sadly, due to lack of adequate funding, the school has gone without a musical for several years.

The leaves in Queen Village are almost all to the ground as Fall ends and Winter begins. We are excited to bring comprehensive leaf clean up to the neighborhood for the second year in a row. Over the next several weeks, we will be working to remove leaves from streets and sidewalks. This helps to keep our neighborhood clean through the Winter months and into the Spring. If we miss your street and it has a lot of leaves to remove, let us know by emailing info@qvna.org and we will try to get to it! Check out these before and after photos of Catharine Street.

Fascinating story about a house everyone in QV has seen... Staying a single family home apparently.

    A rare Queen Village mansion eludes redevelopment, will remain a home
    Despite Queen Village's heightened attractiveness in recent years, the rare estate-like property at 113-21 Bainbridge Street, owned by Philadelphia's Steen family, could not sell three years ago. But when it was put on the auction block earlier this year, it drew interest from developers, builders, and residents alike.

1125 E. Moyamensing Avenue [Tom DelColle, Coldwell Banker Preferred-Center City]

    Delightful Trinity in Pennsport asks $315K
    A delightful Trinity-style rowhome sitting pretty in Pennsport has come to the market, asking $315,000. The two-bedroom, one-bedroom home has the tell-tale signs of a Trinity, including original pine floors and the traditional wooden, spiral staircase winding up all three floors. But the home is definitely bigger than your average Trinity.

QVNA and the 30+ other civic groups in the Philadelphia Crosstown Coalition support the goal of increasing the amount of affordable housing in our city. But this bill makes sweeping changes to the zoning code and the effect it would have on our neighborhoods is very unclear. So the Crosstown Coalition is asking you to contact the members of City Council’s Rules Committee, to let them know that you want Bill 170678 to be held and not voted on at Monday’s committee hearing.

    Mixed Income Housing Bill
    But this bill makes sweeping changes to the zoning code and the effect it would have on our neighborhoods is very unclear. In fact, the current, amended version of the bill was made available only on November 20 - and the bill is scheduled for a binding committee vote on Monday, November 27.
