Old City still reeling from 4-alarm inferno

239 Chestnut was destroyed by the blaze, and work will begin next week to bring the remains of the building down.

"It hits pretty hard because the 200 block of Chestnut Street is one of the most intact blocks of 19th-century fabric we have in the entire city," said Paul Steinke of the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia.

    The impact of a four-alarm fire earlier this week was still being felt as the weekend got underway in the Old City section of Philadelphia. 239 Chestnut was destroyed by the blaze, and work will begin next week to bring the remains of the building down.

Before 239 Chestnut Street can be demolished, 237 Chestnut, also heavily damaged by the fire, must be stabilized to make the demolition process safer and to avoid further harm to its structure. The owner of 237 Chestnut St. has begun preparing the building for the necessary shoring work.

Phase-Out of SEPTA Token Sales at Vending Mac...

Phase-Out of SEPTA Token Sales at Vending Machines Concludes – Week of February 26 The gradual phase-out of token sales at vending machines on the Market-Frankford and Broad Street Lines concludes this coming week. Sales of tokens at vending machines will end next week at the following locations: City Hall Station and Olney Transportation Center on the Broad Street Line and 15th Street Station on the Market-Frankford Line. By the end of February, tokens will no longer be sold at cashier booths or vending machines on the Market-Frankford, Broad Street and Norristown High Speed Lines. SEPTA Key Ambassadors will continue to be at stations to assist customers in purchasing fares and transitioning to the SEPTA Key Card and Travel Wallet. A SEPTA Key Card, loaded with funds in the Travel Wallet, offers the same discounted fare as using tokens and transfers. 2, 5 and 10 packs of tokens will continue to be available at SEPTA Sales Offices at: SEPTA Headquarters (1234 Market Street, Philadelphia), 69th Street Transportation Center, Frankford Transportation Center, Olney Transportation Center and 15th Street. While SEPTA will continue to accept tokens for fare payment until notice, in March, SEPTA will begin phasing out token sales at the remaining Authority-owned locations, including major sales offices and Regional Rail stations. A full schedule for these locations will be announced in the coming weeks. Token sales at over 200 third-party retailers will also continue until further notice. The phase-out of token sales represents the next major step forward for the SEPTA Key fare modernization project. Customers who still use tokens and paper transfers are urged to make the switch now to a SEPTA Key Card, which are currently free with a $10 minimum Travel Wallet load. The Travel Wallet feature allows customers to add value to a SEPTA Key Card for tap-and-go travel on all Transit modes, including buses, city and suburban trolleys, trackless trolleys, the Market-Frankford Line, the Broad Street-Line/Broad-Ridge Spur and the Norristown High Speed Line. Customers who currently use tokens, paper transfers or pay with cash can transition to the convenience, security and added features of the Key card.
