In June city building inspectors wrote 649 North 44th street was “imminently dangerous.”

    Philly Landlord with Most Blighted Houses? PHA
    Crumbling, leaning, unsealed buildings throughout Philadelphia are owned by a public agency charged with providing safe and affordable housing. An NBC 10 Investigation reveals the Philadelphia Public Housing Authority owns more unsafe and imminently dangerous property than any other landlord.

Philadelphia’s Spiral Standpipe: A Monument to Industry, Innovation and . . . History

Standpipe for West Philadelphia Water Works, (35th St. and Fairmount Ave.) Lithograph by Rease & Schell, ca. 1853. (The Library Company of Philadelphia)

    Philadelphia's Spiral Standpipe: A Monument to Industry, Innovation and . . . History
    In a quirky burst of engineering, aesthetics and memory in the middle of the 19th-century, Philadelphia built itself a great, 130-foot spiral column. The idea was complicated and ambitious: provide water pressure for the emerging neighborhood of Mantua with a standpipe wrapped in an ornate, circular staircase topped off with a 17-foot wide public viewing platform and, above that, a 16-foot statue of George Washington.

    New Student Housing Getting Started Near Lancaster Avenue
    From an architectural perspective, it's almost always a shame to see a church get demolished. Since many churches in Philadelphia date back over a century, there are a number that provide a direct connection to a community's history. Additionally, these grand buildings add to the architectural diversity in different neighborhoods, especially those dominated by row homes.

    Some Philly pools close tomorrow: List of 2016 dates
    Philadelphia is in the middle of a heat wave, with a scorching weekend on tap, but some of the city's public pools will close before the hottest weather hits. Philadelphia's 70 free public pools (the most per-capita of any city in the country) begin to shut down for the season on Friday, just as temperatures are set to soar, with triple-digit heat indices forecasted for Saturday and Sunday.
    http://www.philly.com

  • I love children and would love to be a lifeguard in any one of the pools......if I could swim. I'm sure I would be turned down if I contacted the city. However, if you are saying that the city would take anyone to be a lifeguard, then the problem's already solved. Dennis, need I remind you that closing of the pools in such hot weather is no sarcastic matter but a very serious one.

  • Gina, I am in total agreement with you. Furthermore, the city does this every year.
    Why not hire as Gina has stated, it would give the teens a nice summer job and they could work up to Labor Day. Gina's thoughts are excellent and I hope and pray the powers that be take heed.
