In the final episode of the Baltimore Avenue trilogy, we go beyond 52nd Street, to the westernmost end of the Avenue: where up is down, and down is up.
Thanks to Renee McBride Williams, Monica Allison, Thelma Peake, and Tyrone Sims for speaking to me for this episode, and to Christina Holmes at the Cobbs Creek branch of the Philadelphia Free Library for her help with research. Thanks to my mentors and advisors at Drexel University for their support: Jordan McClain, Kevin Egan, Ana Nye, and Melinda Lewis. Thanks also to Kevin Jablonowski for his help. Our theme music was composed by former West Philadelphia resident Es Hamidi. Street Level is researched, recorded, and produced by Maren Larsen.
