Film Summary:

On the corner of 60th and Vine in the Haddington neighborhood of Philadelphia, youth are building bikes and breaking stereotypes at Neighborhood Bike Works, a non-profit where youth recycle old bikes as they acquire technical expertise and improve their bike riding skills.  Their video shows young people working hard, getting along with each other and taking an interest in the history of their community.
