Newbold

Newbold is the newest neighborhood in Philadelphia to get an actual new classified subdivision neighborhood name. Convenient to everything, its residents  get to enjoy its ability to walk to Broad St., Center City and Passyunk Square to shop and dine.

The History of Newbold

John Longacre, owner of the popular South Philadelphia Taproom, decided to call the neighborhood “Newbold” in 2003 in an effort to revitalize the area of older homes. Longacre got the name Newbold because Hicks street was originally  named Newbold Street. If you look at the picture above you can see Newbold Street carved into the cornerstone. The real question is “How did Newbold Street become Hicks Street ?”

NewboldJohn Longacre is the owner of the Taproom and also Ultimo Cafe shown above. These establishments are the backbone/pioneer businesses of Newbold. John stared both with a vision to redevelop this specific part of South Philadelphia. And so far he is doing a great job. Home prices have risen significantly over the past 4 years. Ultimo Cafe was just voted the Best Cup of Coffee in USA and John also just broke ground on 16th & Moore Street with plans to build 16 row homes, 2 condos and some retail space. This project will be the first green home development south of Christian Street. This has been something that the younger generation has been requesting in South Philadelphia since Passyunk Square started picking up major traction.

Newbold Boundaries
