The Urban Saloon: Refuge of Men and Power

Jacob Binder’s Saloon, Northeast corner Thompson Street and Germantown Avenue, June 9, 1902, Photograph by Hervey B. Harmer (PhillyHistory.org)

    The Urban Saloon: Refuge of Men and Power
    "I didn't know anything about girls," Jack London wrote, "I had been too busy being a man." For London, as well as millions of other American men of similar vintage, the saloon was ground zero for "being a man" where the "test of true manhood," as Madelon Powers put it, "was peer recognition for being a reliable ally and comrade in the volatile street culture of urban America."

Unique Northern Liberties trinity asks $360K

But in some cases, like this three-bed home at 1022 North Orianna Street, that style can be really unique.

    Unique Northern Liberties trinity asks $360K
    It's no secret that Philly has a lot of Trinity homes with a lot of different interior styles. Some are sleek and contemporary, others bright and airy (just check out the variety in these listings from last year). But in some cases, like this three-bed home at 1022 North Orianna Street, that style can be really unique.

    The best icy desserts in Philadelphia | Craig LaBan
    Craig LaBan: I hear you, my steamy friend. It's so blistering hot outside now, I don't think I can even do the richness of ice cream. I need a nondairy frozen dessert that's as close to ice as possible - but tastier - and Philly has several exceptional solutions, both classic and novel.
