Ogontz, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Ogontz, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Ogontz is a neighborhood in the North Philadelphia section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that borders suburban Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County.

Ogontz gets its name from Ogontz Avenue, a thoroughfare which runs diagonally through the uniform grid of streets in the city. Many of the commercial and residential properties on Ogontz Ave. began to decline in the early 1970s, but revitalization efforts have largely restored it to being an important destination for the surrounding community. Ogontz Avenue joins Pennsylvania Route 309 (old US 309), a limited access expressway, after it crosses into the suburbs.

Ogontz is often considered to be a section of West Oak Lane, a larger neighborhood.
