Originally created for the neighborhood of East Falls, Philadelphia, East Falls Local entertains audiences with local lore, characters and events through our unique voice and enthusiasm for the neighborhoods of our NW corner of Philly: Roxborough/Manayunk, Mt Airy, Chestnut Hill, Germantown, Allegheny… even up City Ave in Bala Cynwyd.
We supplement traditional news coverage with colorful, light-hearted stories that are heavy on graphics and fun to read and share. We also strive to inform neighbors about new business & development, and advocate for inclusive, sustainable growth & enterprise.
In addition to our blog & social media feeds, every month we print our best stories and reader comments in a splashy free publication available all over the area.
Thank you for supporting regional, independent press. We’re proud to develop this new hybrid of print & social media specifically for our readers, the coolest cats in the city.
Fallsers — Enjoy real-time police report, community meeting recaps, and an Events Calendar where you can add your own event/class/yard sale/block party/etc. (up to 2 events per week)
New Fallsers: Welcome to the neighborhood! Please enjoy our directory of local services — chock full of linked-up listings & updated regularly.
Writers/Photographers/Artists: Unleash the frustrated artist in you, all over our 3,500+ followers! On an average week, 75% of our audience likes, shares, or comments on our content. Earn local fame and valuable feedback (or just mess with people!).
Business Owners: Promote yourself FREE with our online “Mind Your Business” questionnaire. We’ll spin your answers into a custom profile we’ll promote to our readers, who enjoy getting the inside scoop on local resources.
Sponsorship is Awesome! Hop into our humming network of local businesses and organizations we work with on events, photo shoots, and stories to endear you to our readers (and search engines).
On social media, we hit hashtags and handles to help spread sponsor reach — even if you’re not posting, yourself, your feed will appear active with EFL mentions. Check out our media kit or contact us for rates & info.
