    Travel 100 years into history and back with these then-and-now Philly photos
    You don't need 10 photos to tell you how much Philadelphia has changed in 100 years, but it sure makes it easier to picture. Some of the biggest changes to our nation's history will take place in 2017 - from Donald Trump taking over the presidency and medical marijuana becoming available in Pennsylvania to Philadelphia adopting the first soda tax in any major U.S.

"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.
