Tacony is a historic neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia, about from downtown ("Center City") Philadelphia. It is the oldest continuously occupied (by Europeans) neighborhood in Philadelphia. It is bounded by Frankford Avenue on the northwest, Cottman Avenue on the northeast, Robbins Street on the southwest, and the Delaware River and Interstate 95 on the southeast. Early Swedish records spelled it Taokanick, a Lenape word for "forest" or "wilderness." Tacony's ZIP code, along with Wissinoming and East Mayfair, is 19135. The neighborhood has a large Irish American and Italian American population. About 18,000 people now live in Tacony.
