Butler and Aramingo – looking south from the Lowes parking lot
The area around Castor and Armingo Ave – a neighborhood no man’s land between Port Richmond, Bridesburg, Kensington, Frankford, and Tacony – is an old industrial corridor whose mixed fortunes have followed the rise and fall of Philly’s manufacturing economy. Today big box stores, strip malls, vacant lots, light industry, rail lines, and abandoned factories coexist with working class rowhouse blocks and a new ‘luxury townhouse’ development.
