The Rail Park is at The Rail Park.

Check out this great article by Inga Saffron about the challenges, conversations, and dreams of the future Rail Park. http://www.philly.com/philly/columnists/inga_saffron/reading-viaduct-park-railroad-philadelphia-callowhill-neighborhood-20180419.html

    The first piece of the Reading Viaduct rail park opens in June. Then what? - Philly
    Back in the early 2000s, when the Callowhill neighborhood was a wasteland of shuttered factories, a couple of artists came up with a crazy plan to turn the abandoned Reading Viaduct into a park. New York's High Line hadn't yet opened, and few in Philadelphia could imagine the overgrown relic as a public attraction.

    Embiid scores 23, 76ers top Heat 128-108 for 2-1 series lead
    Joel Embiid had trouble with his new mask. It didn't slow him down. Embiid's playoff debut was a smashing success for Philadelphia. The All-Star center returned from a 10-game absence by scoring 23 points, including a personal 7-0 run down the stretch that iced matters, and the 76ers reclaimed control of their Eastern Conference first-round series by topping the Miami Heat 128-108 on Thursday night.

    Not everyone feels welcome camping out in 'third spaces' like Starbucks
    For years, Starbucks has described its stores as a "third space" - a quasi-public place, away from home or the office, where anyone is welcome to hang out. But the rules about that space are murky. They can vary from place to place, and even store to store.
