Support Our Neighbors in Queen Village!
Queen Village is Philadelphia’s oldest residential neighborhood, lying along the eastern edge of the city, immediately south of Center City and adjacent to Penn’s Landing – an easy walk from The Residences at Dockside.
It’s a charming community with a diverse blend of businesses, parks and playgrounds – and it’s home to the city’s most famous and eclectic shopping district (South Street), the oldest and largest fabric row in the country (4th Street Fabric Row) and a lively restaurant and entertainment scene.
We’re all for supporting our neighbors at Dockside, and we want to encourage you to do the same.
Queen Village Neighbors Association (QVNA) is a non-profit organization that helps restore and preserve the historic value of the Queen Village neighborhood, and brings together people who are willing to work and help enhance the community.
There are a couple of ways you can be involved this week. On Wednesday night (1/8/14), you can attend a night of networking and pop-up storytelling about how plans for our neighborhoods become reality. The QVNA will recognize the newest graduating class of the Citizens Planning Institute and hand out the Philadelphia 2035 Progress Report / 2014 Calendar. Philadelphia beer, wine, and refreshments will be served, with dramatic views of the city we love. Location: 2401 Walnut Street – 8th floor (enter at 24th and Sansom). Doors open at 5:30 pm and the program starts at 6:00 pm. It’s all free, but seating is limited. Please RSVP if you would like to attend: power-of-the-plan.eventbrite.com.
Or, this coming Saturday (1/11/14) at 2:00 p.m., you can help clean up the neighborhood in a more hands-on way. QVNA has arranged permission to cut the locks off all the abandoned bikes in the neighborhood. They need people to help cut, as well as drivers and assistants. If you can help, please RSVP to email@example.com.

Thanks for whatever you can do to help improve the quality of our city and our unique neighborhoods!
