Right NEast/Wrong NEast: Globe Dye Works gets attention – in the wrong neighborhood

Globe Dye Works is pretty cool. The coworking space on the 2100-block of Kinsey Street has become a work environment for everyone from glassblowers to bakers.

One of those bakers is Lily Fischer. And while she’s busy baking cupcakes on TV, Philly.com is busy trying to find Globe Dye Works.

The website ran a profile of Fischer, owner of Cupcake Wonderland, as she prepared for her appearance on the Food Network. It was a nice profile on a hard-working entrepreneur who’s using prize money from a TV show to pay for space in a building that’s becoming one of Frankford’s most well-known assets.

Too bad Philly.com hopped over the Frankford Creek to give all that credit to Port Richmond.

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.


Hat tip to the Frankford Gazette and reader Peter Dyer for bringing this error to our attention.
