Kendrick Mill’s Transformation Into Mixed-Use

  • Ray Gant, 56, of Frankford, is cleaning up Philadelphia.  Profiled in the new book Everyday Heroes: 50 Americans Changing the World One Nonprofit at a Time, his Ray of Hope Project has forged lasting ties with local civics and universities and been commissioned by the Streets Department to beautify countless blocks of Philadelphia’s blighted cityscape.“I come out and offer beautification in the hope that people in the community will come out and engage with the process themselves,” he reflects.
  • The first of three public programs focused on the recent excavations on the Delaware Waterfront will be held at the Independence Seaport Museum on November 15, from 6PM-8PM. Participants will get a chance to speak directly with the archaeologists about their finds, with this meeting dealing with the pre-Penn Native Americans’ settlements.
