ABOUT NEWBOLD

Newbold, a part of Point Breeze, is a neighborhood in South Philadelphia. Spanning from Washington Avenue to Passyunk and from Broad Street to 18th Street, Newbold only recently separated Point Breeze. As a part of a revitalization effort made by business and home owners in the area, Newbold is now considered an “up and coming” neighborhood, housing numerous well known restaurants and businesses. The name was chosen by John Longacre, owner of the South Philly Taproom, to better distinguish the area from the ambiguousness of South Philly. The area continues to grow, attracting young professionals as well as new businesses that see the potential of the area.
