    The opening of Philadelphia 's long-awaited Rail Park means more than just a public green space. To many, it means residential development, it means commercial growth, and-possibly most importantly-it means a heightened sense of community in Philly's Center City. At least that's the takeaway city officials stressed Thursday morning during the opening of the park's first phase.
