Right NEast/Wrong NEast: Inqy confuses Frankford and Juniata

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.

By Shannon McDonald

An Inquirer story on Friday about a collision involving a SEPTA bus and a van listed the accident in Frankford.

But, the 3 p.m. incident that sent 14 people to the hospital took place at Kensington and Hunting Park avenues in Juniata.

Frankford is in the NEast, Juniata isn’t. Those few blocks can make a huge difference.
