From Slaughterhouses to Skateparks: Exploring the Schuylkill Riverfront

March 18 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
23rd and Walnut, southwest corner,

University City and Center City: tantalizingly close to each other, yet separated by a river, a highway, train tracks and a massive rail yard. After generations of talk about somehow knitting these two powerhouse neighborhoods closer together, the process of transitioning the divided area into one (semi)-cohesive unit has finally begun in earnest. Join GroJLart, foul-mouthed creator of the blog Philaphilia, for a guided walk that loops around the Center City-University City Connection.

Forgotten Chestnut Street

April 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Meet next to the parking lot, 9th & Chestnut, southwest corner + Google Map

Things are changing fast, but as you'll see from this tour, that's always been the case. Join GroJLart for an exploration of the past, present, and future of one of Philadelphia's most dynamic and important corridors.
