This bill would remap the area bounded by 29th Street and Sedgley, Ridge, and Glenwood Avenues. This area contains the Gideon Edwards School. Planner David Fecteau rushed to assure the commissioners that the school is in no danger.

    Jimmies vs. Sprinkles: Why Philly fights over what we call an ice cream topping
    Philadelphia's signature ice cream topping is jimmies. Or it's sprinkles. Or it's both. And we're ready to fight about it.

    How a kid from Oxford Circle became one of city's most successful developers
    Growing up in Oxford Circle, with a drycleaner father and a stay at home mom, developer Carl Dranoff didn't come from money. But he managed to make plenty of it. So how does a guy with no money get enough money to be a developer?
