“You know, that’s my community too — I grew up at Broad and Erie,” said Thomas. “First thing I did was go out and ask the community, ‘What you want?’ ”

    Philly Free Streets offers opportunity to explore traffic-free North Broad
    During last year's Philly Free Streets event, Mayor Jim Kenney said, there wasn't much elbow room on Fifth Street's narrow corridor. This year, he thought a bit more broadly. The next Philly Free Streets program will take place along North Broad Street on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 8 a.m.
