The Schukyll River is:
a. very hard to spell
b. a river which flows from Schukyll county
(north of Harrisburgh
) to the Delaware River
, cutting the city in two; west of the Schukyll is West Philadelphia
and University City
; east is Center City
and South Philly
"Schukyll--what a weird word. Is that Indian?" Kate asked.
"I think it's Dutch," I replied.
"Yeah--Dutch for polluted-fuckin'-river."
