Hello My name is Marc Reason. I have purposely stayed out of the food truck issue because I believed and still believe it is a block issue. I believe the residents voices should be heard. Since social media campaigns have been started and news paper articles have suggested that people that look like each other are trying to keep one group from conducting a mobile business, I felt the need to speak out. From Philly Voice Article License and Inspection quote - "UPDATE: Several hours after this story was published, L&I responded to an earlier request for comment. Department spokeswoman Karen Guss said the truck "still has valid licenses and can operate anywhere in Philadelphia that is not expressly restricted." "The Platters operators’ license was not a license to vend right outside of their barber shop. The license was not for any one location," she said, noting that there is some level of community opposition to the truck. "There would have been no reason for L&I to know that that specific location is what those guys had in mind." I DON'T WANT A FOOD TRUCK ON MY BLOCK JUST LIKE THE RESIDENTS ON DREXEL RD DON'T WANT ONE ON THEIR BLOCK. TRYING TO INTIMIDATE RESIDENTS IS SAD AND DISGUSTING ESPECIALLY COMING FROM PEOPLE THAT DO NOT LIVE IN OVERBROOK PARK. SO AGAIN I MARC A. REASON SUPPORT MY COMMUNITY, MY NEIGHBORS AND THAT DOESN'T MAKE ME ANTI- BUSINESS, ANTI YOUNG BLACK MALES IT JUST MAKES ME A GOOD NEIGHBOR. I STAND WITH DREXEL ROAD RESIDENTS. SINCERELY, MARC A REASON

    Painted Bride says farewell to iconic building in Old City
    This weekend, the Painted Bride will hold its 49th anniversary party, and it's likely to be the organization's last hurrah in Old City. The Painted Bride has been a cornerstone of the Philadelphia culture scene for almost a half-century, starting in a scrappy storefront on South Street and then in the 1980s, moving into a former elevator factory building in Old City.
