Michael Solomonov Is Opening Another Dizengoff

The original Dizengoff, which opened in 2014, is on 16th and Sansom. An outpost inside the Chelsea Market in New York followed, in the spring of 2016. But for the next Dizengoff, you’ll have to venture a little farther: It’s opening in Miami.

    Flipside; The farther away you stay, the hotter the deal. The NFL Draft begins in Philly in two days - as do the Penn Relays - and there are still plenty of lodging options for last-minute travelers who want to make their way to Philly.

    #techInColor presents "Accessibility Hacks: Keeping Tech Inclusive for Everyone"
    Have you ever heard the old saying, "everything can change in the blink of an eye?" It is often use to remind of us of our mortality and that nothing is certain. One day you're walking and the next a freak accident happens and you're now disabled.

Sinkhole causes Center City street closure, traffic issues

That sinkhole on 17th near Walnut still a factor. May be cleared this afternoon, but avoid this morning! @karenrogers6abc has more this am pic.twitter.com/1xDcx45gyW

John DiGiulio, Philadelphia Water Department spokesman, said the sinkhole was caused by a 3-inch break in a connection that services the high-rise building at 1700 Walnut Street. Water from the leak eroded the ground underneath 17th Street, which led to the depression, DiGiulio said.

Part of 17th St. in Center City closed after hole opens in road

Traffic crawled along Walnut and 17th. Horns were honking with motorists frustrated and upset by the back-up.

    Part of 17th St. in Center City closed after hole opens in road
    Work continued throughout the day Tuesday as crews worked to repair a broken underground pipe that caused part of Center City street to cave in. It happened on 17th Street between Walnut and Locust. That stretch of the street was shut down, causing a big traffic headache in the area, and it could remain closed into Wednesday.
