Morrell Park

Morrell Park sits on the eastern side of the Far Northeast, north of Grant Avenue and east of Northeast Philadelphia Airport. One of the quirks about Morrell Park is that many of its homes have garages facing the street, something quite different from the traditional Philadelphia rowhouse design. Most homes also have kitchens that face the front, living rooms that face the rear of the property, three or four bedrooms, and about 1,200 sq ft of living space. There are not many through thoroughfares since many streets curve to conform to the natural topography of the area.
