East Passyunk residents discuss the neighborhood’s evolution


More than 20 people from South Philadelphia’s East Passyunk and Passyunk Square neighborhoods chatted with us Wednesday afternoon about their community. WHYY Urban Life Correspondent Elizabeth Fiedler led the discussion, which is captured below in tweets and photos.

We heard from business owners, long-time residents, newcomers, and even people from other neighborhoods who’ve witnessed similar developments in their own communities.

If you’ve got more to say about East Passyunk, or any neighborhood, consider sending us an essay.
