Kitty Foyle was a Nice Girl from Frankford

Ginger Rogers won the Oscar for her performance in the title role of the 1940 Movie “Kitty Foyle” about the star crossed love between a girl from Frankford and the son of an aristocratic Main Line Family. The book upon which the movie is based, written by Christopher Morley, contained much coverage of her early years in Frankford but that part of the story line did not make it to the screen.

Private Schools Show Growth in Some Neighborhoods

There is an interesting story on Philadelphia Neighborhoods about the fluctuations in enrollment at Our Lady of Port Richmond School. Will parents pay more to send their children to what they see as better schools?  Does the presence of those better school choices attract families to a neighborhood?
