The plight of booming cities I moved to Philadelphia fifteen years ago and it was a different city then. I remember Frankford Avenue, the bustling corridor that rivals Passyunk East as the best night life strip in town, just had two bars on it worth walking to: it was either Johnny Brenda’s or Atlantis: The Lost Bar. Now there are restaurants and bars on every block from Lehigh to Girard on Frankford Ave. It’s a whole different world (that is, by the way, part of the reason why we want to give our building near Frankford and Norris a face-lift and update its façade). Anyway, the Riverwards aren’t unique in the sense that they’ve changed. Philadelphia has dramatically changed over the last fifteen years, in fact.
