With $24 million parking lot deal, Goldenberg Group mulls Market East development

Eighth and Market is one of the most significant intersections in the city,” Seth Shapiro, Goldenberg’s chief operating officer, said in an email. “It affords, and even demands, a significant, sizable, mixed-use development.”

    With $24 million parking lot deal, Goldenberg Group mulls Market East development
    The development was once dominated by the original branch of the now-defunct Gimbels department store chain, which was demolished in the late 1970s when the store moved to the then-newly built Gallery. - Jacob Adelman, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

This week, Mx. Rogers comes to the neighborhood.

    Philly's queer cabaret examines the truths (and myths) of Mister Rogers' signature kindness
    The first black-and-white frames of Morgan Neville's Won't You Be My Neighbor show the familiar Fred Rogers at the piano, coolly attempting to place value and meaning on his approach to communicating with children by way of modulation. As a trained classical composer, he knew that some key changes could be managed with ease, and others could not.
