The Bridge on Race, Ready for Its Closeup

When last we looked in on The Bridge on Race, the bold apartment building at the northwest corner of 2nd and Race streets, most of it was still a construction zone, but we could see the shape of things to come.

    A Peruvian Food Revolution Is Afoot in Philadelphia
    With two restaurants opening in Old City and Northern Liberties, Philly is finally getting in on the Peruvian food boom. Apart from the very few Peruvian restaurants that exist exclusively on the fringes of this city (the El Balconcitos in the Northeast and Inka Wall in Upper Darby), Philadelphia doesn't have much input in the Peruvian restaurant revolution happening across the globe.

At Ridge & Spring Garden a prospective Temple student, Luke, who only gives his first name, explains that he and his friends Grace and Alayna are “just here walking around the city.” Grace adds “We wanted to give food and money to homeless people,” an addition that feels abrupt, if well-meaning.

At York & Ridge, I find some sharrows, or “shared lane markings” which are meant to alert drivers of the existence of cyclists and provide a safer experience. The cars barrel through a part of Ridge that has widened from two lanes to four.
