Based on the defaced bumper sticker outside Abbraccio Restarant in New
Southwestern Liberties, I'd say there's at least two of you misguided
history nuts out there in the gentrified zone. (Unless you're the angry

"This is Blockley Almshouse
West Phila is a City-Country consolidation scheme"
On Friday Matt Wolfe asked:
"Any sentiment out there to change from the contrived University City to
the historically correct (or at least somewhat historically correct) name of
Blockley, which was the name of the estate of an early property owner I
think named form his home in England and later incorporated in the name of
Blockley Township, an area which encompassed much of the area prior to the
City-County consolidation in 1854?"
