The Philly Greek Stake - Cosmos Philly
My name is Harry and many of you in the Delaware Valley (that’s the area around Philadelphia, for those of you who are not from around here) know me. I grew up in a typical Greek-American family in South Jersey (diner owners, of course), and later moved to Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, otherwise known as Mikri Ellada!
Everyone knows about the Greek towns in Astoria, Detroit, Chicago, or Danforth Street in Toronto, but Philadelphia and the surrounding area, especially Upper Darby, is rich with history of the Greeks and their American experience – some good, some bad, but uniquely us. Where else can you get a Philly cheesesteak with a side of spanakopita?
