Strawberry Mansion: Five Murals That Tell the Community’s Story

Father Paul Washington was a priest at the Church of the Advocates, located near Temple University. He was a social activist and religious leader. This mural overlooks a playground at Ridge Avenue and Cumberland Drive.

This mural located on 3015 Ridge Avenue, was inspired by Catherine Ryan Hyde’s “Pay it Forward.” This mural uses prominent African-American role models such as Martin Luther King Jr. who have “paid it forward.”

This mural was dedicated because of the rich tradition of horse riding in Fairmount Park. The design is used to pay homage to the old west. It was completed on May 1, 2005 and is located at 3222 W. Montgomery Avenue.

This mural is overlooking the playground behind the Gideon Edward School. This is one of many schools in the neighborhood. The Gideon Edward School is located at 2817 W. Glenwood Avenue.

    Here's what went into creating Philly's first new bus route in almost a decade
    The task seems simple enough: create a public transit service linking Grays Ferry, Fairmount, and Brewerytown to the booming job market in University City. SEPTA has buses. The city has roads. Just put tires on asphalt and connect points A to B to C, right?
