Due to inclement weather, the National Archives at Philadelphia will be closed on March 21, 2018. Given the forecast, please check our page or www.archives.gov/philadelphia on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning for updates on when our building will reopen. The photograph shared here is from a snow storm that took place on January 20, 1934. Although it was taken 84 years ago in Medford, NJ, this image appears to be quite a familiar scene!

    Philadelphia Streets:
    Our Highway Unit is the primary response team during snow and ice events. One of the major challenges the unit incurs is snow being shoveled back into plowed streets after city teams clear the street. This practice is not only illegal, it's a hazard to drivers and pedestrians.

Good day neighbors! As you are shoveling tonight, contemplating your role in the community, as you all surely do, why not think about what you can do to participate in the 2018 Philly Spring Clean Up!

Some info: A) If you'd like to register your block or a vacant lot, you can do that on the Streets Department website. By Registering, you make your project visible to other neighbors looking for something to get involved with. And, you get free supplies from the city, like brooms, rakes and most importantly: BAGS ** If you register a project, feel free to post it here for other near neighbors to see! Before and after photos get major likes. ** PROJECT SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE FRIDAY, MARCH 23!! B) If you don't have a project, you can look for on the Streets website for one near you. If you don't see one, refer to point A C) Streets will be around on that Saturday afternoon to take away bags upon bags of trash, as well as debris from alleys and lots. D) If you don't have a project, and you don't want to find one, by golly, grab a broom and a bag and just git out there! E) Watch this space for more news about special treats from East Point Breeze Neighbors for Cleaners and Greeners on April 7! http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/philly-spring-cleanup/

The new Philadelphia Historical Burial Places Map launched! The Philadelphia Archaeological Forum has created an extensive geographical database (GIS) that currently includes more than 200 historic burial places in Philadelphia. In addition to being useful to historians, archaeologists, and other researchers, consulting the database of known cemeteries and private family plots will become a starting point in the process of due diligence of both developers and the city of Philadelphia when considering new projects. You can explore the map on their new site, here: http://www.phillyarchaeology.net/paf-activities/burial-places-forum/historic-philadelphia-burial-places-map/

    Colouring - Tickets - The Boot & Saddle - Philadelphia, PA - June 15th, 2018
    Fifties painter Mark Rothko, known for his large solid swaths of color, once claimed to have no real interest in the color itself or whatever form it took, only in expressing simple human emotions. In a similar sense, Colouring is the culmination of several sonic hues -- instrumental and electronic, pop and underground, heart and body -- but the aim is all feeling.
