Appeals court rules in favor of Fishtown man who fixed up city lot

In 1989, Galdo bought his home on Front Street near Lee and started sprucing up the eyesore across the street. The city had condemned the property...

    Appeals court rules in favor of Fishtown man who fixed up city lot - Philly
    Under the doctrine of adverse possession, property owners have to behave like property owners to keep from losing what's theirs - even when that owner is the city. That's the latest on "The Notorious Galdo Parcel," as it's proclaimed in giant letters painted on the side of a trailer parked on a Fishtown lot.

Pulling this announcement from a Fishtown discussion group and public school parent Micah Hanson. Awesome news for Hackett. "We learned about a week ago (and were okayed to release the news yesterday) that Horatio B. Hackett Elementary School has been chosen as the site for the Philadelphia Eagles Playground Build. The Philadelphia Eagles made the announcement to the students and staff yesterday at Hackett. Principal Kimmel, the Hackett staff, Friends Of Hackett and many tremendous partners have been working for 5 years to revitalize this barren asphalt yard. The Philadelphia Water Department has already committed $1.3 million to construct a massive stormwater management system including rain gardens and other elements (construction start TBD). The PTSSD granted the funds for the decorative gateway now ornamenting the entrance at York and Sepviva. This latest news from the Eagles will allow us to realize a large portion of the rest of the plan. Details are evolving, but the Eagles will provide play equipment, surfacing, a turf field, and other accessories while the Mural Arts Philadelphia will be installing a mural covering a significant chunk of the building facing the yard. This will all happen pretty quickly so expect big changes soon!"

    Kensington Derby & Arts Festival: Art, engineering, puns, mud pit
    It's not often that the words "mud pit" and "arts festival" are uttered in the same breath, unless you live in East Kensington. Then it's an annual tradition. Every year since 2006, a few dozen teams-ranging in size from solo operations to 15-person school squads-design and para
