Manayunk is filled with all kinds of shops and businesses that can satisfy people from all over. See what this Bronx native has to say about the magic of this little town!
Are you from Manayunk? If not, what brings you here?
No, I'm actually from the Bronx. I go to school in Philly, but my friend said I should come out here to get my phone fixed.
Have you ever gone to any events in Manayunk?
I was just looking at that poster that was listing all the holiday events. I've never been to anything out here, but I'm thinking of bringing my girlfriend back for some of the festivities or to a restaurant.
Are there any restaurants in particular that caught your eye?
I think one of the places with outside seating could be nice if it was good weather like today. But my friend who told me to come out here was going on and on about the ice cream from Tubby Robot too. I might stop by this weekend.
Are there any businesses you would recommend to visitors?
Spectrum Scientifics is cool. I just wandered around for a little while and there were all kinds of cool science sets and magic stuff. I recommend Main Street Music, actually. I stopped in there really quick but I saw that they had A LOT of options in all kinds of genres. Go there if you're into music, then stop by the comic book store and let me know how that is!
