The city just rolled out new property assessments - officially called " Proposed Valuations for Tax Year 2019" - and while some home values decreased, many went significantly up.

    Philadelphia's building code is set to receive an update expected to reduce energy bills and shrink the city's carbon footprint. On Thursday, the Council's Licenses & Inspections committee gave the green light on a bill that if passed will mandate that the owners of commercial buildings comply with 2018 energy efficiency building standards set by the International Code Council, an industry group that establishes best practices for governments worldwide.

    Immaculately Restored Film Lets You Revisit Life in New York City in 1911
    Other than one or two of the world's supercentenarians, nobody remembers New York in 1911. Plenty of living historians and enthusiasts of the city have paid intensive attention to that booming time period when the city's population fast approached five million, but none experienced it first-hand.

Did you know that we had over 50 volunteers that came on Saturday, for #ComcastCaresDay at Bache-Martin? They helped us spruce up our garden, getting it ready for Bache in Bloom Silent Auction and Raffle, they helped give our school a good spring cleaning, filling up a 40' dumpster, organized Ms. Pierce's closet, AND helped us enter more of our books into the library system (getting us closer to that opening goal). How amazing is that?! A huge THANK YOU to all these wonderful volunteers both from Comcast, and Friends of Bache-Martin; from the students, faculty, and parents!

    The controversial arrest of two black men at a Center City Starbucks last Thursday has reignited the debate about racial profiling by police and businesses in Philadelphia and around the country. An Inquirer and Daily News analysis of police data in the districts that cover Center City shows that while police stops have fallen sharply since 2014, blacks are still significantly more likely to be stopped than whites.
