This Old Barn

A charming piece of East Falls history gets a facelift as we dig into the property's storied past. 

    This Old Barn
    This historic barn on JeffU's campus goes "topless" for the next few weeks as it undergoes $300k+ in upgrades, including repointed walls, new rafters, and a new roof. The barn will still need further improvements before it's fully restored, but this first phase is a big step towards preserving this unique structure from the early 19th century.

    Butterflies of Love
    Neighbors from East Falls, Manayunk, Roxborough - and all over NW Philly - came out for VNA Hospice of Philadelphia's 8th Annual Butterfly Release and Community Celebration of Life.

Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge

Imagine all the people, sharing all the world. 

    Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge
    The colorful flags seen recently on the Falls Bridge aren't mere decoration, but an ancient Buddhist tradition for invoking peace, compassion and harmony. While associated today with Tibetan Buddhists, the practice of printing prayers on cloth flags has its roots in India.

Good Access = Good Business

How accessible are we here in the Falls? Daniella Slon’s very personal assessment of local establishments -- and the importance of including everyone. 

    Good Access = Good Business
    How accessible are we here in the Falls? Daniella Slon's very personal assessment of local establishments - and the importance of including everyone. Last fall, I heard about a book club meeting being held at the Wissahickon Brewing Company. I love books and enjoy meeting like-minded people, so I signed up.

Fatherless Father’s Day

Of memories and moving on: how our fathers continue to inspire us even after they've gone. 

    Fatherless Father's Day
    (Original post 6/5/18 on authorlarrybenjamin.blogspot.com) I remember the accident as if it was yesterday. I had been living in Washington, D.C. for three years. That particular morning, a Saturday, I was running late for work. It was a gray, wet morning at the edge of Winter.
