Brewerytown: it might not take you long to derive from its name what the neighborhood used to be all about. Prior to electric refrigeration, there was nowhere in
America like it. Within ten square blocks, dozens of breweries operated next to one another, and their very business spurred other business like keg production and
construction. Rich Wagner has an excellent background on the once German, now mostly black neighborhood and its history HERE.|
Jim Millisky, however, brings to Philly Skyline a 34 photo tour through the neighborhood taken in early October 2006.
