Western sun setting over CHOP and Smilow.

On an almost balmy Saturday with Philadelphians still weary from the longest winter anyone can remember, we captured some of the future greatness of the cement boardwalk extension of the Schuylkill River Trail. Soon this path will carry folks from South Street and the proposed monolithic wall of institutional bland that is CHOP's proposed Schuylkill project we wrote about here northward towards Center City.

Initial impressions: the trail is going to be awesome and it's going to be here forever. ONWARD to the photos (click them to enlarge) >>>


We've been looking at Philadelphia street safety issues this week on the blog, with the help of some maps that Azavea's Daniel McGlone made using PennDOT crash location data.
