Francisville is a neighborhood in North Philadelphia, which is a section of the city of Philadelphia. In recent years the community has become more activist, with the Francisville Neighborhood Development Corporation and Concerned Citizens of Francisville representing the neighborhood in efforts to improve housing and cut down on crime. A city program called the Neighborhood Transformation Initiative has brought the wrecking ball to many properties, with the hopes that building some new structures in the region is a better solution than costly renovations to blighted historic buildings.
