Right NEast/Wrong NEast: Inqy confuses avenue and street

By Shannon McDonald

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 mag 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.

In an article about the death of two local firefighters, Inquirer staff writer Robert Moran listed Loretto Avenue as Loretto Street when mentioning Ladder Company 28 in his report. If only major newspapers had access to the Internet. And if only they took the time to care about the NEast. I don’t see the Inqy confusing Girard Avenue with Girard Street.
