      Looks very much like the gardens there are around here. We call them allotments,where people grow all their own veg,tomatoes,and flowers.

      You may be right, but not according to The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society:

      "Regarded as one of Philadelphia's largest and most dynamic community gardens, Glenwood Green Acres can be found in North Central Philadelphia's Susquehanna neighborhood"


      If you know better, please let me know too.

      From Little Abe:

      "I guess that the neighborhood may officially be referred to as Susquehanna, (though I've never heard that before) the current residents don't employ that name, but instead refer to their neighborhood simply as north philly, or define their residence more specifically according to the nearest intersection i.e. "18th and Glenwood," would be stated as a place of residence as opposed to a neighborhood name."

      Thanks Abe.

      Hi Tony, Would you mind if I used your photo to advertise a Pb (lead) soil testing event in Philadelphia? It's a great photo - I envision it going in the background. Would that be ok?
