Right NEast/Wrong NEast: Port Richmond not in the NEast

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 a story yesterday about a memorial ceremony held for slain police officer Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski, CBS3 labeled the event as being in Northeast Philadelphia.

Last we check, the intersection of Almond and Schilller streets is in Port Richmond, which is not NEast.
