    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.

Spring Garden home with stone archways lists for $313K

1501 Green Street #2 [Tammy McMullin, Keller Williams]

    This Spring Garden home with stone archways is asking $313K
    A 100-year-old home in the heart of the city brings a touch of old Philadelphia into the modern day, all for $313,000. The two-bed, two-bath home offers a lot of unique design features throughout its nearly 1,000 square feet of space, but some that stick out most are the high ornamental ceilings in the front living room and long chandelier.
