A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our supporters for this project, especially the Anonymous donor who gave $750 earlier today to exceed our fundraising goal!! The students and staff of Vare Washington are so grateful for this opportunity!

    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.

For the second year in a row, QVNA is hosting a comprehensive leaf clean up in the neighborhood. Crews began removing leaves from streets and sidewalks on December 4 and will continue through December 15. This helps to keep our neighborhood clean through the Winter months and into the Spring. The clean up is scheduled for all blocks that have a significant amount of leaves on the ground, but if your block is missed and it has a lot of leaves to remove, let us know by emailing info@QVNA.org and we will try to include it!

QV's very own Hungry Pigeon getting great reviews on breakfast options and more!

    Hungry Pigeon serves comfort plates with a cheffy twist
    It can sometimes take a few chapters in a chef's career before he can build the restaurant of his dreams. In the case of the Hungry Pigeon, it is a pair of veteran chefs who are responsible for the irrepressibly quirky, handcrafted character that has made this hybrid cafe-resto-bar such a lovable, all-day fixture on Fabric Row.

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.

A rare Queen Village mansion eludes redevelopment, will remain a home

Nestled among a string of rowhouses in Philadelphia’s Queen Village neighborhood, the property at 113-21 Bainbridge St. is nothing like its neighbors.

Land-use maps from the 1940s show that 113-21 Bainbridge St. was not always the five-lot estate that it is today. According to a photo in the city’s archives, the 100 block of Bainbridge Street consisted of simple and modest rowhouses in December 1957.

...block of Bainbridge Street. Two of the rowhouses on the mansion’s lot, 119 and 121 Bainbridge St., were designated as historic at the time, according to Paul Chrystie, a spokesman for the...

Delightful Trinity in Pennsport asks $315K

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.
