    That ‘forgotten’ Forgotten Bottom is seeing investment is a testament to Philadelphia’s continued desirability as a place to live, work, and play. Hemmed in by Grays Ferry Avenue, CSX tracks, I-76, Fed Ex Center, Philadelphia Trolly Works, and other commercial enterprises, Forgotten Bottom is short on amenities and access to same. However, there is entree to the Schuylkill River Trail via Wharton Street, opening up green space and recreation.

  2. Another sh*itbox apartment complex in an area with no parking. Yes In Your Back Yard eh?
