Queen Village's Hungry Pigeon is now open all day!

    Philadelphia's New Crop Of All Day, Every Day Eats
    Hunger doesn't keep to shifts, so neither do Philly restaurants. Philadelphia has long had an all-day-and-night dining scene. But until recently, that scene was limited to diners and those famous cheesesteak spots. Today, in neighborhoods throughout the city and region, upper-scale restaurants have adapted meal service to a more flexible schedule.

    Preparing for Power Outages | Office of Emergency Management
    March 5, 2018 Power outages happen year-round. They can be a temporary nuisance caused by a system failure or something that impacts our lives for days, resulting from a Nor'easter, Tropical Storm or other severe weather. Outages can also impact travel, bringing trees down on wires or roads that affect mass-transit or create hazardous driving conditions.

‘No Complaints’: From Life in Poland to Philadelphia

They settled in South Philly in a house with three or four other families at Seventh and Dickinson streets. Her mother started working at a factory while looking for an apartment.

They eventually found an apartment at Fourth and Tasker streets, and Kornsgold and her brother started school — which was detailed in the 1949 Exponent article.

    'No Complaints': From Life in Poland to Philadelphia - Jewish Exponent
    Rose Kornsgold got a call from her granddaughter a few months ago excitedly telling her, "Bubbe, you're famous!" Kornsgold's picture was featured in the Sept. 28, 2017 issue of the Jewish Exponent for a flashback story about 200 refugee children who began attending public schools in Philadelphia.
