Northeast Philadelphia (“the Northeast”) is a section of the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to the 2000 Census, the Northeast has a sizable percentage of the city’s 1.5 million people — a population of between 300,000 and 450,000, depending on how the area is defined. Beginning in the 1980′s, many of the Northeast’s middle class children graduated college and settled in suburbs, especially nearby Bucks County. With this emigration of older populations, a new influx of Latinos have settled along the southern edges of the Northeast, while African Americans and Asian immigrants have purchased homes in this once almost exclusively white area of the city. The neighborhoods that make up Northeast Philadelphia include Fox Chase, Lawncrest, Rhawnhurst, Tacony, Frankford, Mayfair, Bustleton, Torresdale, Parkwood, Somerton, Burholme, Ryers, Holmesburg, and Crestmont Farms. It is sometimes said to include the neighborhoods of Bridesburg, Port Richmond, and Fishtown, as well.
