The area known as Newbold is a part of the Point Breeze neighborhood of South Philadelphia. Because the city of Philadelphia doesn't officially name neighborhoods, anyone can choose to call where they live Newbold, or choose not to if they desire.
Our goal is to strengthen the fabric of South Philadelphia through volunteer and civic engagement. We are not interested in renaming neighborhoods, but we do have an area that we focus our efforts on, stretching from the south side of Washington Ave. to the north side of Passyunk Ave., and from the west side of Broad St. to the west side of 18th St.
Anyone who lives, owns property, or runs a business within those boundaries is welcome to attend our meetings, and is eligible to become a voting member or run for a board position. Anyone who lives outside of those boundaries is also welcome to attend and participate, but will not be eligible to vote or hold a position on the board.
