And suddenly it's summertime in the city | Helen Ubiñas

A bike is essential where they’re from, a passport to explore. The four friends on Tioga and Randolph know every inch of their neighborhood, but on days like this, the air makes it seem like every corner holds surprise.

    And suddenly it's summertime in the city | Helen Ubiñas
    The graduation balloons that soared above porches and front stoops just last week have lost their lift, all those Congratulations! now dipping toward the pavement. School's out and it's officially-unofficially summer in the city. But even more promising, it's that sweet spot between the end of classes and the beginning of more structured activities, family outings, summer camp.

    Employee's dirty fingernails, cat and mouse poop close Philly eateries
    Cat and mouse poop found in the same location? I wonder who won that battle. My money is on the cat. In this round of Clean Plates, Philadelphia food inspectors were busy citing restaurants for an employee's dirty fingernails, leaky sinks, falling tiles and holes in walls.
