Holmesburg and Upper Holmesburg recently received
new neighborhood banners along Frankford Avenue, courtesy of the Major Artery
Revitalization Committee (MARC).
There are 20 Holmesburg banners that run between
Sheffield and Solly Avenues. The 20 Upper Holmesburg banners hang between Solly
and Linden Avenues.
"We would like to thank Councilwoman Joan Krajewski,
State Rep. Michael McGeehan, Congresswoman Allyson Y. Schwartz, the Community
Life Improvement Program, the Holmesburg and Upper Holmesburg Civic
Associations, as well as SEPTA," said MARC President John Byrne, "for their
support of this beautification effort."
Similar banners plan to be added in Tacony and
