    Renovated Free Library branches aim to get more people in the door
    The gleaming, white Lillian Marrero Library on Lehigh Avenue is easily the most magnificent building in the Fairhill neighborhood. And that's long been a problem for the Free Library. The building was a gift from Andrew Carnegie, the early 20th century philanthropist, who believed that community libraries could help lift people out of poverty.

    Mayor Rizzo's discriminatory housing policies: confronting our past and present
    Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney recently announced that the statue of former Mayor Frank Rizzo before the Municipal Services Building is to be relocated. Much of the discussion has centered on discrimination, but little attention has been paid to Mayor Rizzo's housing policies.

    Where to eat by yourself in Philly this Thanksgiving
    Not everyone can make it home for Thanksgiving. The family gathering might be too far away. You might be tied up with work. Or maybe you're just ignoring everyone this year. Whatever the reason, you don't have to eat alone. Several local bars are open on Turkey Day, so head out early and grab a seat.

    Blackwell proposes transit oriented development around Provident Mutual Life Insurance building
    On Thursday, West Philadelphia's Jannie Blackwell became the first City Council member to take advantage of new zoning language to promote transit oriented development (TOD). Blackwell introduced a bill to encourage dense developments around the Market-Frankford line's 46th Street Station. That Blackwell is the first council member to embrace TOD in their district is a bit of a surprise.
