Right NEast/Wrong NEast: 215mag needs a new name

Philly’s got a lot of small-time grassroots publications. We’re completely supportive of that, especially given the entrepreneurial nature of NEast Philly.

But if you’re going to be small and low-budget, you have to least get stuff right. Especially when the name of your magazine in two.one.five.

A post last week on the magazine’s blog featured the grand opening of a motion picture sound studio at Fifth Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue. Do you see where this is going…?

Yep, two.one.five magazine isn’t very 2-1-5 knowledgeable. How authentic.

Outside media don’t care about the Northeast. We have all seen them misuse, misspell and mistake our neighborhoods and our streets, so we at NEast Philly wanted to do something about it. When they get it wrong, we set it right in a segment we like to call Right NEast/Wrong NEast.
