Love Living Here
The neighborhood has many names. Since the 1980’s, it has often been referred to as Graduate Hospital, after the medical facility that sits on its’ Northern edge. This name has become merely historical in nature since the hospital closed in 2007. Despite this, the name is still used and is sometimes shortened to G-Ho. G-Ho is also variously known as South of South, SoSo, Naval Square, or Schuylkill-Southwest. Devil’s Pocket is another nickname used for a smaller corner of Graduate Hospital.
