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.

    A Philadelphia library gets 'risky' with a new play space
    It's a weekday afternoon just before 3:00 p.m. and Cecil B. Moore Library in North Philadelphia is quiet. But librarian Kayla Hoskinson says when school lets out, kids will flock to the library's newest attraction: a ten-foot-by-ten-foot climbing wall. "They really, really love it," says Hoskinson.
