Been out of the neighborhood and living in Texas for 12 years now. I don't miss the winters, but I do miss the neighborhood feeling. Growing up in Fairmount was like growing up in a small town, where everyone knows everyone, miss the feeling. I go home every year at christmas and its great to walk the neighborhood again. Great website. Thanks

As a native Philadelphian, who grew up in Wynnefield and walked to Fairmount Park, I feel it's a good thing when the people of Philadelphia can communicate about our town. Philly has so much promise and so much to offer!

It's funny how a mind works. I went to Sartain School [30th and Oxford] from 1943 to 1949 and can still remember the name of every teacher AND what room they were in!!! i am 67 now and still remember going to the Fairmount Movie at 26th and Girard Ave. every Sat afternoon. They sure were the good old days. John Haruch bjharuch@comcast.net

OMG......I remember Joe's wagon too and bowling. Funny how you forget things and then the memories come flooding back when someone mentions them. I remember that we did stuff all the time. Every Sunday we either went to the movies, bowling at Penn Center or even out to Upper Darby to skate. We played ring up, stick ball, block ball, and we stayed busy. I miss the smell of the City and playing in a fire plug. Just some more great memories

I'm glad I stumbled across this site. I got a kick out of seeing my Dad (Jake) mentioned in connection with the Sports Association too. I have such great memories of those times. Remember "The Bomb" that Joe Reilly drove? It was a big old station wagon and had a Fairmount Brave painted on one door and a squaw on the other. And how about bowling at 30th Street Station on Saturday mornings? I remember the banquets were so much fun at St. Franny's Hall. We all got trophies, roast beef sandwiches and birch beer and we had a ball. Of course there was always real beer for the Dads! We were lucky to grow up in such a great neighborhood with such great people.

Stumbled across this site while surfing. Great to see some people i recognize. I am out of Fairmount for 20 yrs now and just located in south Jersey. I miss the old neighborhood and this site has brought back old memories. Was even better to see my dad mentioned on the site as one of the founders of the sports association. Keep up the good work

This site is Great. The guestbook, pictures, links and history bring back a lot of memories. Grew up on 25th street (between brown and aspen) moved out in 1987 after I graduated from Hallahan. Always a great place to visit and see old friends. I loved growing up in the city!

I know. I know. The Website hasn't accepted Guestbook or Classified listings in a long time. Well, I've been busy! And after all, I live in Florida, I'm way out of the loop. I'll break down and do some more work here in the next few weeks. Hopefully, I'll get a Forum back up and running, so you can all vent. And I'll add Classifieds, even though we'll probably get lots of SPAM. Thanks for visiting. P.S. Stop calling me Bobby! UGH! lol
