Greetings from Strawberry Mansion

This week's postcard from Billy Penn hails from Strawberry Mansion, "home of John Coltrane, where Wilt Chamberlain's record fell." An area of Philly that has seen decades of violence may now be showing signs of gentrification, particularly in the areas neighboring Brewerytown, which has seen an influx of investment in recent years.
