    South Philadelphia blogger's colorful, easy peasy art projects are collected in a cool, new book | Elizabeth Wellington
    One of two things happen when I embark on any sort of do-it-myself home decor art project. I either never finish it - thus the three almost-done picture frames stashed in my storage closet - or it takes me weeks to complete it and during the process my living room becomes a virtual obstacle course.

Fishtown residents showed mixed feelings about a potential crossing project at Norris, Cedar and Susquehanna intersection. The Fishtown Neighbors Association supports the plan.

    Fishtown residents have mixed feelings about crossing project at Norris, Cedar and Susquehanna...
    The Fishtown Neighbors Association held an informational meeting Thursday night for what it's calling a "crossing project" at the intersection of Susquehanna, Norris and Cedar streets. The project entails blocking off some of the space in front of ReAnimator Coffee with planters and paint as a way to effectively extend the curb closer to both the middle of the intersection and the sidewalks on the opposite side of Norris Street and Susquehanna Avenue.
