    Hidden history - Northeast Times
    Walking through a stretch of Pennypack Park tucked away between Holmesburg and Frankford avenues, Jason Sherman is devastated to see a forked sycamore tree has been damaged by a fallen trunk. "Someone's gotta fight for those trees," he mutters as we hike back up the slope back to the trail, twigs and rotting leaves crunching under our feet.

    Food truck to brick-and-mortar: 4 Philly success stories
    The food truck scene in Philadelphia has grown into one of the best aspects of the city. It's become so successful, in fact, that lots of vendors have made the leap and opened storefronts. Differences between a mobile food operation and a brick-and-mortar spot are many, so making the transition can be tough.
