Parkside is a neighborhood in the West Philadelphia section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Much of the Parkside neighborhood was built during the 1876 Centennial Exhibition. It is a National Register of Historic Places Historic District with many examples of Victorian architecture, some well-preserved, others in poor condition. The neighborhood was populated by German Americans, followed by Eastern European Jews, before becoming heavily African American after World War II. (Directly after WWII it was home to many displaced persons from Eastern Europe, which included Latvians.)
