True to its long-established Polish community, Port Richmond’s main streets are lined with Polish markets like the stalwart Krakus, as well as delis, bakeries and restaurants. The area is also known for the restored trolleys running down Richmond Street, alongside the Delaware River. On Allegheny Avenue, the towering spires and ornamentation of St. Adalbert’s Church showcase Polish Cathedral–style architecture.
The neighborhood is bounded by the Castor Avenue to the northeast, York Street to the southwest, I-95 and the Delaware River to the southeast, and Trenton Avenue to the northwest. While some people dispute the western boundary of the neighborhood, stating either Aramingo Avenue or Frankford Avenue, general consensus among residents on either side of Trenton Avenue or the railroad is that those east of it claim Port Richmond and those west of it claim Kensington.
