Germantown and its Cobblestones


We set out to find the untold stories of Germantown, a thriving neighborhood of culture and history in Northwest Philadelphia. The cobblestones of Germantown Avenue distinguish the busy street from the rest of the neighborhood. We learned about the history of these jagged rocks, how their current construction is affecting area businesses and the streetscape, and just how residents feel about the rock that makes their homes so unique.

Read about what cobblestones are, and then, learn why cobblestones are harming the community of Germantown as a $17 million construction project takes its toll on local business trends.
