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.
Yesterday SEPTA announced that due to the success of the 24-hour weekend Market-Frankford El and Broad Street Line Subway service ‘test period’ this summer that they were going to extend the test until November 2nd. This is a huge win for supporters of late-night public transit, and for all those who signed my #SEPTA247 petition early this year. But why not just extend it indefinitely?
