It's not uncommon to see our little friends from The Giving Tree Daycare and Preschool in our galleries, where their inquisitive little voices can be heard asking questions about the work hanging there. We're still in awe of the gingerbread version of Fleisher they constructed with their teacher, Cori, for the Center / Architecture + Design's Gingerbread Architecture Challenge. Receiving an honorable mention is a huge achievement. Looks like we might have the next crop of design professionals on our hands!

New BYOB Alert: Burrata Is in the Works in South Philly

South Philly neighbors mourning August, the Italian BYOB that sat in the cozy corner spot at 13th and Wharton from 2003 to 2017, might be in luck. The building is getting a new tenant and it’s another Italian BYOB, this one named Burrata.

Restaurants run in the family. Furxhiu’s older brother, Florian, is taking some heat for his upcoming taco shop, opening at Broad and Lombard on January 20. People aren’t happy with the name he chose: Illegal Tacos.

The humble pencil is a requirement on nearly every Fleisher class and workshop supply list. Have you ever thought about how they are made? This beautiful photo essay looks at how General Pencil Company takes raw wax, paint, cedar planks, and graphite to create art's most ubiquitous tool.

    Inside One of America's Last Pencil Factories
    Over the past few years, the photographer Christopher Payne visited the factory dozens of times, documenting every phase of the manufacturing process. His photographs capture the many different worlds hidden inside the complex's plain brick exterior. The basement, where workers process charcoal, is a universe of absolute gray: gray shirts, gray hands, gray machines swallowing gray ingredients.

    Philadelphian brings more 'Unity in the Community' during the holidays with NBA's Ben Simmons
    South Philly native, Anton Moore, and the NBA's and Philadelphia 76ers' rising star, Ben Simmons, connected recently to assist those in need and spread some holiday cheer. "We worked on this for three weeks and we had to keep it a secret from the families until the day of the event," Moore said of the four families taken on a "surprise shopping spree at Target."

For the 8th year in the row, we were able to surprise six families from our community with our Operation Holiday Help Initiative, despite the rain. It was easy for someone not to show up because of the rain, but people still showed up to show their commitment to our community. We would like to give a big thank you to each and every sponsor that participated in this initiative and of course the residents that nominated these families and made us aware of their hardship.In addition to that, Thank you to Mayor Kenney and his team for making this event a success.The families really appreciated it so much. @ Down South Philly

Passyunk Square home gets modern facelift, asks $385K

Prior to the renovation, the home at 1541 S. Camac Street was just your average South Philly rowhome, featuring a green awning outside and some faux finishes inside. But after selling for $130,000 in 2011, it looks completely brand new both inside and out.

    South Philly building gets nod for National Register of Historic Places
    The future of the former Frankford Chocolate Factory may be unknown, but its past and its architectural character were enough to earn it a timeless spot on the National Register of Historic Places. And that could provide just the stimulus the building needs to reinvigorate its on-again, off-again redevelopment efforts.
