"Developing fast and well"
Many Whitman neighborhoods still hold the charm and traditions of South Philly Italian homes, but gentrification too has begun to affect East Oregon Ave. The prices are slowly rising as new developments continue to occur in the area. The large South Bowl opening up right nearby Tony Luke's has really driven the nightlife of the neighborhood. The Oregon Diner, coming ShopRite and coffee shop, as well as influx of young professionals and new restaurants suggests Oregon Ave may be the new up and coming district in the Whitman neighborhood of South Philly.
