FRANCISVILLE

BORDERS/ HISTORY

s a neighborhood in North Philadelphia, which is a section of the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Its boundaries are Fairmount Avenue to the south, Girard Avenue to the north, Broad Street to the east, and Corinthian Avenue to the west. In 2000, it had a population of about 4,500. It is sometimes considered to be a part of the Fairmount neighborhood, but Fairmount more specifically lies to Francisville’s west. To its south is the Spring Garden neighborhood.

RECENT HISTORY
In recent years the community has become more activist, with the Francisville Neighborhood Development Corporation and Concerned Citizens of Francisville representing the neighborhood in efforts to improve housing and cut down on crime. A city program called the Neighborhood Transformation Initiative has brought the wrecking ball to many properties, with the hopes that building some new structures in the region is a better solution than costly renovations to blighted historic buildings.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

The neighborhood is served by Broad Street Subway stations at Fairmount and Girard, the SEPTA Route 15 trolley, and the 33 SEPTA Bus Line. The Francisville Playground is located at 737-39 Francis St and boasts a full baseball field, children’s play area, two basketball courts and a large community pool.
