Additional filming locations included 1218 Arch Street (now the Center for Architecture) for the movie’s Action AIDS Center and 1901 Chestnut Street for Joe Miller’s office.

    Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia
    As a form of cinematic activism, Philadelphia (1993) attempted to reform the public understanding of AIDS in a time when ignorance and fear of the disease fueled prejudice and hate. The film is not merely set in the city of its title, but in a large part, the people of Philadelphia performed it.

In case you’ve ever wondered what a narwhal sounds like, researchers in Greenland now have the answer. https://nyti.ms/2JHMa0K

    Listen to the Sounds of Narwhals That Have Been Elusive to Science
    As melting ice opens east Greenland to petroleum prospectors and cruises, scientists are rushing to study the noises made by a remote population of toothed whales. You'd think that narwhals couldn't be more enchanting. These elusive, ice-dodging, deep-diving whales have 10-foot snaggletoothed tusks, and they see with sound.

This week, Mx. Rogers comes to the neighborhood.

    Philly's queer cabaret examines the truths (and myths) of Mister Rogers' signature kindness
    The first black-and-white frames of Morgan Neville's Won't You Be My Neighbor show the familiar Fred Rogers at the piano, coolly attempting to place value and meaning on his approach to communicating with children by way of modulation. As a trained classical composer, he knew that some key changes could be managed with ease, and others could not.
