that must be a file photo. THAT Sunoco is at Walnut Ln and Henry Ave. You can see Dalessandro's across the street.

Ya, I took that picture last fall. It's now among the stock photos of the businesses in the area. Just about every business in Manayunk/Roxborough is listed here on patch! So, if you want to give a review or rate a biz, you can find it and do so on the site :-)

Thanks for the heads up, everyone. The Sunoco in question is the one near Leverington, so we switched out the wrong photo.

But I wanted to be the first one to point out the harmless error!!!
