Congrats to iur very own Kyle Shenandoah. Way to go!!

    Citizen of the Week: Kyle Shenandoah - The Philadelphia Citizen
    Shortly after President Trump's 2016 election, Kyle Shenandoah, a Forgotten Bottom resident, had a life-altering realization. A tax specialist at H&R Block, the 29-year-old had never been politically active; he didn't have a background in law or policy, and figured that disqualified him from really getting involved.

Developer Ori Feibush has acquired the site of the former Frankford Chocolate Factory on the north side of Washington Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets in South Philadelphia, with plans to raze most of the historic structure to make way for apartments, townhouses and stores.

    Ori Feibush plans homes and shops at Chocolate Factory site in South Philly
    Developer Ori Feibush says his proposal would be a big step toward transforming Washington Avenue, west of Broad Street, from a strip of warehouses and blighted industrial buildings into a dense commercial and residential corridor binding the revitalized neighborhoods to its north and south.

    Here's what went into creating Philly's first new bus route in almost a decade
    The task seems simple enough: create a public transit service linking Grays Ferry, Fairmount, and Brewerytown to the booming job market in University City. SEPTA has buses. The city has roads. Just put tires on asphalt and connect points A to B to C, right?
