Northern Liberties ‘designer home’ with deck and two dishwashers asks $1.2M

A developer built and then inhabited the 4,272-square-foot townhouse at 1009 North Orianna Street in Northern Liberties.

    Northern Liberties 'designer home' with deck and two dishwashers asks $1.2M
    A developer built and then inhabited the 4,272-square-foot townhouse at 1009 North Orianna Street in Northern Liberties. The spread is a modern-contemporary hybrid, with plenty of clean lines and light-filled capaciousness. There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and touches such as a 15-foot island in the kitchen (and double everything there, too-two dishwashers, two sinks, and two ovens).

Why a North Philly meeting about injection sites erupted into a shouting match

The panel discussion and Q&A session at the the church on Seventh Street near Girard was convened to give the community a chance to explore the proposed CUES.

    Why a North Philly meeting about injection sites erupted into a shouting match
    Devin Reaves stood up in his front row seat and issued a dare about injection sites to the city councilpersons in front of him. "If there's something else we can do that can lower overdose deaths," said Reaves, a recovery advocate, addressing Councilman David Oh and Councilwoman Cindy Bass, "[then] let's do that."
