First, we want to sincerely thank you for your prioritization of pedestrian and bicycling safety during your tenure as Mayor of Philadelphia. With the implementation of MOTU, the buffered bike lanes on Spruce and Pine Streets, creating and maintaining over 500 miles of bike lanes, and the coming launch of an equitable bike share, your work will be unforgettable.

Last week a Tumblr appeared that seemed to validate all that is wrong with leadership in City Hall. The Tumblr, brilliantly titled "City Hall Parking Lot," includes photos of the northern portion of sidewalk flanking City Hall filled with cars and used as a parking lot. Dilworth Plaza, now fresh from a 50 million dollar KieranTimberlake/OLIN renovation and rechristened Dilworth Park, has a neighbor flanking it that seems to undermine everything it's tying to be.
