Posters on this site have left comments about idyllic days spent in pre-redevelopment Eastwick. These are some concrete remains of this anomalously interracial community: a church known recently as the St. Paul AME and a two story single-family home on the opposite sides of now-defunct 86th St. and Bartram Ave. Much of the grid system of pre-1950s Eastwick has been obliterated, the untended roads end abruptly or continue into abandoned lowland fields as rutted paths.
Both are located here:
[St. Paul AME Church — in 1942 known as the Eastwick Church, built in 1928 by S.J. Jones]
[Builder’s stone, St. Paul’s AME]
[8608 Bartram Ave.]
More to come.
