Have you made efforts to spruce up your home’s facade? Do you have an awesome window box? Stellar potted plants or trees? A great door? Cool mailbox? Enviable outdoor light fixture? Whatever it is that makes your ‘stoop’ great, we want to see it, celebrate it, and share it with the neighborhood!

The PSCA Beautification Committee would like to celebrate the contributions that our neighbors (you!) make to enhance curb appeal and make Passyunk Square more attractive. Each month, we’ll select a “Stoop of the Month” winner to feature in the newsletter. Winning stoops will be adorned with a special sign to let passersby know that they are looking at the Stoop of the Month Winners will also receive a $10 gift card to Urban Jungle so they can keep up the good work!

Nominate your own stoop, or a neighbor’s.

To apply, please send the following to stoopofthemonth@passyunk.org by Friday, April 22:

  • 1-2 digital color photos
  • Property address
  • Brief 1-2 sentence description of what makes this stoop special
  • Your name (the nominator)
  • Property owner’s name (if different from nominator)

Our first winner will be announced in the May edition of the PSCA newsletter.

Nominations for May are due by Friday, April 22, at midnight.
