    One of the biggest threats to Philly murals? New construction
    In Point Breeze, the "Dream in Flight" mural is a symbol. "It represents people coming together," said Alfred Rodgers, 53, who owns Goodman's clothing store on Point Breeze Avenue near Dickinson, about a hundred feet away. Commissioned by Mural Arts, the image of a young boy with a dove in his outstretched hand was painted by community artist Josh Sarantitis in 2000.

    New video: GOP gubernatorial hopeful loves West Philly
    Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner has posted a new internet video featuring a setting not typically associated with a Republican candidate. Wagner appears (see video above) in Malcolm X Park in West Philadelphia, talking exclusively with black people - hugging, shaking hands, high-fiving a little girl, speaking with a woman wearing a hijab.

    Collingswood, a small, revitalized borough with a quaint downtown shopping district a few miles to the east of Philadelphia, is not the sort of place frequented by tourists. With its proximity to Philly, its major events and area hospitals, it's the sort of place that a few dozen residents deemed perfect to offer short-term lodging, mostly commonly through the online service Airbnb.

    Why Play Outdoors?
    Through physical play outdoors, your child develops confidence in herself as she sees her skills grow: "Watch me climb the monkey bars, look how high I can swing. Watch me, watch me!" A child who is initially reluctant to go down the tall slide feels a great deal of personal pride when he finally musters up the courage to do so.
