    A tale of two historic Philadelphia buildings: One rises from the ashes. The other falls to the wrecking ball.
    On a frigid January evening in 2016, just two weeks into Mayor Kenney's tenure, a historic, 19th century apartment house off Rittenhouse Square erupted in a gusher of flame and smoke. Because the fire had been incubating in an air shaft before anyone noticed, it was unusually hot and spread quickly.
