Developer Ori Feibush has acquired the site of the former Frankford Chocolate Factory on the north side of Washington Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets in South Philadelphia, with plans to raze most of the historic structure to make way for apartments, townhouses and stores.

    Ori Feibush plans homes and shops at Chocolate Factory site in South Philly
    Developer Ori Feibush says his proposal would be a big step toward transforming Washington Avenue, west of Broad Street, from a strip of warehouses and blighted industrial buildings into a dense commercial and residential corridor binding the revitalized neighborhoods to its north and south.

Recycle bins

Why is it that the city wants us to recycle but if you go to get a recycle bin you are only allowed one? And you must show ID to even get that one! It doesn’t make sense to me. I haven’t seen any of the ones with a lid anywhere either. Id like to have that so that your recycled property isn’t blowing all over the streets.

Grays Ferry Civic Association added an event....

Annual Spring clean up. This event will be weather dependent but members of the GFCA will be at Peace Park at 32nd and Wharton with supplies to clean up the park and depending on participation maybe some of the surrounding lots. If you have gloves bring them, if not everyone is welcome to use what supplies we have. Light refreshments will be available.

    Here's what went into creating Philly's first new bus route in almost a decade
    The task seems simple enough: create a public transit service linking Grays Ferry, Fairmount, and Brewerytown to the booming job market in University City. SEPTA has buses. The city has roads. Just put tires on asphalt and connect points A to B to C, right?
