Neighborhood groups in border dispute over stretch of Northwest Philly

    Do you live in Paradise?

    If you live in a small swath of land between Route 1 and Scotts Lane, you might. Or maybe, it’s just East Falls.

    Two community organizations — the Ridge-Allegheny-Hunting Park civic group and the East Falls Community Council — are taking part in a Philadelphia rite of passage: disputing neighborhood borders.

    As Amy Z. Quinn explains, the groups will have to work together when it comes to development of the area, but a tax credit agreement between Pep Boys and the EFCC that’s about to expire is causing even more contention.
