"Convent ln is a great little street"
I recently painted the inside of a house on Convent lane in Northeast Philadelphia. The house was over 200 years old, and had plaster walls that had never been painted inside. I was working for a guy who grew up in the area. He told me so many great stories. He said they're was farmland around the area back in the 1950's, and local children used to stand by a street side fence and feed the farmer's animals. Convent lane begins on Frankford ave and is a dead end street, cut short by Interstate 95. There are some great houses on Convent lane, and there is a really strong sense of community there. Towards the end of the street there is a park with winding trails to walk on. I constantly saw people walking by enjoying the area, and the park's trails. Overall I'd say this is one of the greatest streets in Philadelphia. It's a very down home friendly area, very much like the Northeast that once was.
