Northeast Philadelphia History

Northeast Philadelphia includes Rhawnhurst, Crescentville, Lawndale, Morrell Park, Mayfair, Holmesburg, Holme Circle, Frankford, Tacony, Oxford Circle, Bustleton, Parkwood, Torresdale, Somerton, Fox Chase and Pine Valley.

Northeastern Philadelphia was originally the location of many small farms and villages. It was first settled by Swedes; English Quakers followed in the 1680s.  There were many small creeks in the area which was a plus for industry, The first shovel produced in the United States was made by the Rowland Shovel company on Pennypack Creek. The Disston Saw works had its home in Tacony.

The rapid growth of industrialization which followed World War One gave rise to a managerial class whose income stimulated the growth of large areas of row homes with front lawns, (an innovation) in the lower half of the Northeast.  The Market-Frankford Elevated Line and the Roosevelt Boulevard made commuting to other areas feasible. The Northeast saw the arrival of many Irish Catholics.

The end of World War Two and mortgage help from the GI Bill saw an influx of Jewish and different ethnic Catholic populations, and saw the spread of development. The 1970s was a period when upwardly mobile African American and Latino families moved to the Northeast. There is still a growth of residential development wherever there is empty land.

Industry has declined, and has been replaced by commercial enterprises and shopping malls. Two major hospitals are in the Northeast: Fox Chase Cancer Center and Friends Hospital. The Pennypack Creek runs through Pennypack Park, a 1600 acre recreational area. The Tacony-PalmyraBridge offers easy access to New Jersey.
