Welcome to the Roxborough Manayunk Post! We’re dedicated to sharing all of the great things about living in the neighborhood (well, neighborhoods . . . Roxborough, Manayunk, Wissahickon, Andorra, Central Roxborough, Upper Roxborough, Shawmont/Dearnley Park). Just like Philadelphia is called a city of neighborhoods, the Roxborough Manayunk area is a neighborhood of neighborhoods. Each has it’s own unique character and charm but they share the ease of access to the Wissahickon Valley Park, Center City, and the suburbs of Philadelphia.
Ask residents about what they love about the area and most will say that they love the access to the park, the variety of great restaurants, the local shops, the events and festivals, and the ease of access to Center City. In addition to all of that the area is filled with a rich history that includes roots in the textile industry during the Industrial Revolution.
