At 'ghost bike' memorial for lost rider, tears, love, and anger

Avendano, 34, died last Saturday, struck by an SUV on Spring Garden near 10th while working for a food-delivery service, Caviar, police and friends said.

    At 'ghost bike' memorial for lost rider, tears, love, and anger
    Now there's a new one, a memorial "ghost bike," the wheels, frame, and handlebars painted a flat white and set into place Saturday evening at the Spring Garden intersection where courier Pablo Avendano was struck and killed last weekend. In a steady rain, scores of friends, family, and fellow riders christened the site with tears, songs, and curses.

    Playing Favorites: Vista Peru Reviewed
    There are people out there who love Peruvian food, and there are people who've never tried it. No one falls in between. Vista Peru is a potato lover's paradise. All Peruvian restaurants are, really. They're places where the potato is taken in strange new directions - used as filling, like bread, as a center-plate star - and respected as the miraculous tuber it is.

No parking: City tells developers eyeing jilted police HQ site in West Philly to leave lots alone

The city’s plan calls for the police department to move from the cramped and dated four-story concrete building at 750 Race St., popularly known as the Roundhouse, to the former newspaper building on North Broad Street by spring 2020 at an expense of $280.3 million.

This article has 3 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

City officials told the three finalists seeking to revamp the former life insurance campus at 4601 Market St. that two parking lots on the property, now used by an adjacent juvenile jail, cannot be included in their plans.

The lots, to the immediate east and south of the Juvenile Justice Services Center (JJSC) at 48th Street and Haverford Avenue, cover two acres of the 15-acre site, according to Jessica Calter, a spokeswoman for the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corp., which is overseeing the property’s sale.
