The mission of the Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame is to foster the development of civic values and a sense of community in Northeast Philadelphia, along with a greater awareness and appreciation of the area’s rich history, by honoring the lives and accomplishments of its most distinguished citizens. To that end, the Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame will honor those Northeast Philadelphia residents past and present whose lives or careers have been marked by high achievement or those individuals who have had a lasting, significant, and positive impact on the Northeast Philadelphia community.

Hall of Fame Philadelphia logo Often called “the Great Northeast,” Northeast Philadelphia is an area of approximately forty-four square miles bounded by the Delaware River to the east, Bucks County to the north, Montgomery County to the west, and the Tacony and Frankford Creeks to the south. It is an area with a distinguished history that has been enriched by the contributions of countless individuals who have lived and worked here over the years.

The Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame is sponsored by Glen Foerd on the Delaware in partnership with Holy Family University, the Historical Society of Frankford, The Northeast Times and Philadelphia City Councilman At-Large Dennis M. O’Brien
