    The Fed: No sign of homeowners getting pushed from gentrifying neighborhoods - Philly
    Gentrification has become synonymous with the pushing-out of established residents by newcomers, but a study released this week found no evidence of displacement among homeowners in gentrifying Philadelphia neighborhoods. The study, published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, researched the connection between tax delinquency, homeowner mobility and gentrification over the last two years.

Since the Eagles won the Super Bowl way back on February 4th, we've watched the NFL Films footage of that Nick Foles Philly Special touchdown and other exciting plays from the game countless times, all underscored by that dramatic orchestral music that so perfectly captures the feeling of those moments.

    Mayor Kenney never should have met with Meek Mill | Ronnie Polaneczky - Philly
    It's been a week since Mayor Kenney had a one-on-one visit with Meek Mill in jail. It bugged me then, it bugs me now, and I've finally figured out why. Throughout his political career, Kenney has been Philly's Jimmy from the Block, reliably reading the pulse of the populace when it comes to calling out the disloyal, the silly, and the abusive.

    PHOENIXVILLE, PA - Preliminary talks are officially underway to bring passenger rail service to Phoenixville. Developers are proposing two alternatives. The first option, which has been formally presented, involves extending the Manayunk/Norristown line into Phoenixville. Because the infrastructure for this line is already largely in place, it is the cheaper and quicker alternative.
