    MY FAMILY LIVED ON THAT “SAME” BLOCK FROM 1956-1977. IT WAS A “VERY” SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD DURING THAT TIME. OH HOW THE WORLD HAS CHANGED. I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND OUT IF THE YOUNG MAN THAT WAS KILLED IS THE SON OF SOMEONE MY FAMILY KNOWS. EVEN IF HE ISN’T– IT’S SO SAD THAT A MAN @ THE OH SO YOUNG AGE OF 22 IS DEAD. ;-(
    BTW..THAT SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA IS NOT KNOWN AS BREWERYTOWN. IT’S STRAWBERRY MANSION.
