No It is Not Frankford

The major media in this city seems to be getting worse.

    No It is Not Frankford
    They do not seem to know the city anymore. Philadelphia has a lot of neighborhoods and to a newcomer, that can be confusing but if you are in the news business, you better know where you are when you do a story. The story below is about a stabbing at Tyson and Frankford Avenues.
