Society Hill mansion that Jackie O’s ancestor once owned on sale for $2.85M

One of those places—the 5,900-square-foot 262 South Third Street—went on sale in November, and is now asking $1.65 million after a pair of price-chops.

Now 260 South Third Street is on the market for $2.85 million. It’s a bigger affair: 7,244 square feet with the potential for six bedrooms, and flourishes such as a sauna on the lowest level and a living room-slash-dining room with nearly 13-foot ceilings.

    Society Hill mansion that Jackie O's ancestor once owned on sale for $2.85M
    Michael Bouvier, the self-made furniture and real estate tycoon whose great great grandchildren would include Jackie Kennedy Onassis, owned a trio of townhouses on South Third Street in Society Hill in the late 1800s. One of those places-the 5,900-square-foot 262 South Third Street- went on sale in November, and is now asking $1.65 million after a pair of price-chops.

William Way LGBT Community Center added an ev...

Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. There's a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive. Join us at Toasted Walnut to learn about the women's programming at William Way LGBT Community Center. This is a fund and friend raiser - attendees will be able to sign-up or renew their annual community center memberships, network, and learn about the programming planned for this year. Thanks to Toasted Walnut, our host for the evening, for offering complimentary snacks and drink specials. ABOUT WILLIAM WAY LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER: The William Way Community Center encourages, supports, and advocates for the well-being and acceptance of sexual and gender minorities in the Greater Philadelphia region through service, recreational, educational, and cultural programming. Membership in the center begins at just $50 a year, and carries many benefits. From discounts on Center activities to access to the Center's DVD library, your membership not only pays for itself quickly, but also supports so many of the life-saving and life-affirming programs at the Center. http://www.waygay.org/membership/ ABOUT INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY (IWD) 2017: Every person - women, men and non-binary people - can play a part in helping drive better outcomes for women. Through meaningful celebration and targeted bold action, we can all be responsive and responsible leaders in creating a more gender inclusive world. The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. So around the world, IWD provides an important opportunity for ground breaking action that will truly drive greater change for women. https://www.internationalwomensday.com/ ABOUT TOASTED WALNUT SPECIALS: Toasted Walnut is once again hosting us offering complimentary passed snacks, $6 apps and build your own Mac & Cheese; $4 Happy Hour (well brand mixed drinks and all beers); $6 Wines and $6 Tito's from 5-7:30 pm.

Please join Juntos & Galaei Phillyi Monday morning at 11:30 for a press conference/rally to demand that ICE #FreeIvan and allows him to be reunited with his husband. On January 31, Jose “Ivan” Nuñez was attending his marriage interview at USCIS with his husband Paul fully expecting to be in and out of the office. Paul and Ivan are in love and have been married since April 9th, 2016. What should have been a dream come true ended in a nightmare. In the middle of his interview ICE agents stormed into the interview and handcuffed him without warning. We believe that love has no borders and ask you to join us in demanding that ICE free Ivan from detention so he may be reunited with his husband. If Ivan was to be deported back to Mexico, Ivan’s life would be in jeopardy due to his sexuality. His sister, who is also queer, is currently in hiding with her partner back home and close friends of the family have been severely assaulted for their sexual orientation. As of January 13th, USCIS has deemed Ivan and Paul’s marriage petition valid and Ivan has passed his Reasonable Fear interview, meaning there is no reason why he should still be in detention.
