Excellent and well put together!!!
3 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Just finished viewing and I have to say it is very well put together and covers almost all aspects of the needs, desires, benefits, heroics, and struggles of historical preservation. As well, it helps to explain the important role that Northeast Philadelphia played in American history.

With that Northeast Philadelphia is rich in history and many have something special probably just around the corner from them that live there. Part of this film is a call for folks to get involved and trust me, I know how everyday life can engulf your time. If any resolutions are within your future plans maybe finding time to learn our local history or even become more hands on will be a very beneficial activity for you. And do not think this call is limited to just the residents of Northeast Philly, no matter where you are get out there, explore, and research.
