Love this Philadelphia Magazine Q&A with Center City District's Michelle Shannon!

    I Love My Job: Meet Center City's Biggest Cheerleader
    No one knows Philly's downtown better than Michelle Shannon. We're pretty certain that no one knows more about Center City than Michelle Shannon, the woman who's been pushing downtown Philadelphia's development for nearly 30 years. Shannon's love affair with Center City started well before she began working for Center City District where she's been for 20 years now.

"The result: a more inclusive park by many accounts that, while not totally immune to societal ills, is an example of an approach that Balfelt says is about quality, time and trust."

    In Copenhagen, a "People's Park" Design Includes Dark Corners
    In the center of Nørrebro, a relatively diverse northern neighborhood in otherwise homogenous Copenhagen, lies a park the size of a small town square. Despite its unimpressive size, Folkets Park, the People's Park, is a square plot of grassy land that has been contested for decades.

Happy birthday to Marianne Moore, born #OTD in 1887. As birthday gifts go, it's hard to top this autographed baseball; on the other side, it says "Best Wishes, Mickey Mantle and "Joe DiMaggio."
