One building's journey from a place of incarceration, to a venue of liberation

...By then, the Police Department’s 22nd Precinct had moved to a modern building at 17th and Montgomery. Empty and dark, the old Colonial Revival structure was seen as an emblem of urban...

There is a certain poetic justice when a building designed to incarcerate people is turned into venue for liberation. The handsome Colonial Revival structure at 19th and Oxford in North Philadelphia has undergone that transformation twice in its existence.

As the OIC grew into a national operation, the Philadelphia center outgrew the space. The organization eventually moved to Broad and Thompson, where Sullivan had constructed a suburban-style modernist office building.

    One building's journey from a place of incarceration, to a venue of liberation - Philly
    There is a certain poetic justice when a building designed to incarcerate people is turned into venue for liberation. The handsome Colonial Revival structure at 19th and Oxford in North Philadelphia has undergone that transformation twice in its existence. The brick-and-stone building started life around 1910 as a police station and jail.

    L&I commissioner: Boarding houses aren't going away. Philly neighborhoods need to make room for them : Urban Planning : WHYY
    Philadelphia's Licenses & Inspections Commissioner David Perri thinks that the city's zoning code is "inadvertently" encouraging property owners to illegally carve dwellings into multi-unit boarding houses. The regulations skirted by such scofflaw rooming houses are designed to prevent tragedies like the fire that killed four residents of one such makeshift apartment complex in North Philadelphia last month.
