    New 'Made in Chinatown' mob movie is filming in Philly
    Mark V. Wiley, the writer and executive producer of the movie "Made in Chinatown," traces the project's genesis back to 1999. Wiley, who has studied the martial arts and written several books about it, was in New York and noticed the manifold cultural differences between the adjoining Manhattan neighborhoods of Chinatown and Little Italy.

    It's summer at the Academy of Music. Carmen long ago sang the habanera and drew her last breath, Aladdin has rolled up his magic carpet until next time. And construction workers have arrived at Broad and Locust Streets. Almost every summer, the city's glittery, 161-year-old home to ballet, Broadway, and opera goes dark for a few weeks for restoration work.

    Philadelphia legislators have introduced bills in the state Senate and House of Representatives that would give low-income and middle-class students full tuition scholarships to community colleges and state-related universities. The set of bills, referred to as "PA Promise" would give scholarships to students whose family income is less than $110,000 a year and waive room and board costs for students whose family income is less than $48,000 a year.

    Philadelphia has 2,172,896 parking spaces. So how come you're still circling the block?
    There are few things Philadelphians like to complain about more than parking. There's not enough, some argue. There's too much, others contend. Finding a spot takes too long, or garages are too expensive. Some residents believe on-street permit prices should increase - even five or tenfold. Others say parking should be free.
