East Passyunk Crossing (EPX) spans Broad to 6th, Tasker to Snyder. We aim to provide a forum for our neighborhood to have voice and visibility in how the community develops and to bring folks together who have an interest in improving the quality of life in our public spaces, while celebrating the diverse and vibrant character of the neighborhood.
