Tacony is a historic neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia, about 8 miles from downtown Philadelphia. It is bounded by Frankford Avenue on the northwest, Cottman Avenue on the northeast, Robbins Street on the southwest, and the Delaware River and Interstate 95 on the southeast.
The Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, one of only two Delaware River spans connecting New Jersey with northeast Philadelphia (the other being the Betsy Ross Bridge further downstream), has its Pennsylvania terminus in Tacony. The bridge, which carries Pennsylvania Route 73, connects with New Jersey Route 73 in Palmyra, New Jersey. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tacony,_Philadelphia)
Today, Tacony is still a thriving community. Houses in Tacony are mainly made up of row homes and there’s a large Italian and Irish population (http://planphilly.com/neighborhoods/tacony).
