Pennsport is considered one of the oldest communities in South Philly, developed in the colonial period. It's also the home of the Mummers, new and old restaurants and beautiful public parks.
Everyday, Stella and I walk through Jefferson Square Park, an historic landmark with it's star like patterned walkways. We both love going there. She can't keep her eyes off the fat squirrels. And the smells are wonderful. I enjoy the beauty of the park. Sometimes we sit on a bench and enjoy the day. You can feel the strong sense of community with holiday decorations in the winter and movies during the summer. It's lovely.
Then we walk past Companion Animal Hospital. She tries to go in for a treat but I wont let her. Instead we head over to Dickinson Sq. Park, a three acre area in the middle of Pennsport. It's been redone with a new children's playground and is always full of kids and dogs. There doesn't seem to be as many squirrels but the smells are really good there too.
After a while, we are both ready move on. We walk past the Grindcore House, a vegan coffee shop on Greenwich & 4th St. Stella has been there a couple times looking for a treat, but we decide to keep moving. Finally, after passing Federal Donuts, we head over to Mary's house. Hopefully she's home. Stella usually gets a treat, or three, there. After passing Mekong River, a delicious Vietmanese restaurant on Front St., we finally head back towards Queen Village.
Pennsport has become a favorite neighborhood to walk thru. It's a growing community with more and more restaurants opening up, more new construction and renovations of older homes. It hasn't become so overpriced that you can't afford to buy a home there. If you've never crossed over Washington Avenue, you should take a walk. It's a wonderful neighborhood with lots to offer.
