Pressestimmen"If we could all observe our fellow men with Murray Dubin's talent and breadth of understanding, there would be Peace on Earth...and a hell of a lot more great books." --Richard Ben Cramer, Pulitzer Prize Winner "Murray Dubin has managed to weave this neighborhood's 300-year history into a lush tapestry." --The Philadelphia Lawyer "[A] moving series of family histories told by people who grew up in South Philly and in many ways, never left. These folks are mostly Irish, Italian, Jewish and African-American because the community has always been a way station for immigrants from Europe and southern blacks seeking personal or economic freedom in the north." --Main Line Times
