The exact Geogrphic boundaries of Roxborough are somewhat disputed since it borders the wealthy suburbs and the upper Middle class Philadelphia Neighborhood of Manayunk. (everyone wants it far away from them as possible) But a general rule of thumb for its boundaries could be The width of the area from Henry Ave crossing over to Pechin st and the length extending from the city limits down to Wisahicken station.
The neighborhood is conveniently located a good distance from violent thugs in Germantown, and the delicate artistes and meatheads of Manayunk.
Roxborough is home to Tony A's, Zagat rated D'Allesandro's Steaks, Jimmy Cannon's famous 4 AM deliveries, a Rita's, Alex's Pizza, Santucci's Pizza, The Adobe Cafe, 3 easy to get to grocers, plenty of good, unpretentious bars, all the major banks, 3 beer distributors, you get the idea.
A great place to be.

Ashley: "YES!!! MAIN STREET OMG!!!! I LOVE THE BARZ!"
Jeff: "Bitch, check yourself."
