Back by popular demand...

Join other members of the Fairmount Park Conservancy for an exclusive tour of the East Park Reservoir. Not a member? Membership starts at $35 and is a great way to show your love for Fairmount Park!

Go behind the scenes of the incredible East Park Reservoir in Fairmount Park which has become a significant resting area for migratory birds making their way south down the eastern seaboard. An estimated 150 species of migratory birds visit the reservoir every year!

A little history (you'll get more on the tour!)

This 37 acre artificial lake once provided the city with drinking water and was decommissioned in the 1950s when the population of the city went into decline and the need for water reserves dwindled. By the early 90s all but one basin, which is still in use today, were left to be reclaimed by nature. 

The future of the site (you'll get more on the tour!)

This year, work will begin at the site on the construction of the brand new Discovery Center, a 14,000 square foot educational hub for leadership training and environmental conservation that is a product of a partnership between Audubon PA and the Philadelphia Outward Bound School. 

A milestone was reached this past July when the City officially leased the land to the partnership, making plans to finally reusing the basin a reality. The design phase of the center is nearing completion and construction is slated to begin this summer.

We hope you'll join us on a riveting tour of the Reservoir!

FringeArts is Philadelphia’s home for contemporary performance, presenting progressive, world-class art that stretches the imagination and boldly defies expectation. As the city’s lead experimenter in the arts, FringeArts exposes audiences to unpredictable dance, theater and music performances by accomplished and emerging innovators who are pushing the boundaries of art-making and redefining the artistic landscape worldwide.


FringeArts

140 N. Columbus Boulevard 


When “The Dude” Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, two thugs urinate on his rug to coerce him into paying a debt he knows nothing about. While attempting to gain recompense for the ruined rug from his wealthy counterpart, he accepts a one-time job with high pay-off. He enlists the help of his bowling buddy, Walter, a gun-toting Jewish-convert with anger issues. Deception leads to more trouble, and it soon seems that everyone from porn empire tycoons to nihilists want something from The Dude.

<![CDATA[DAG Meeting - The Philadelphia Housing Authority's Redevelopment of the Sharswood Neighborhood]]> http://planphilly.com/events/2015/08/06/dag-meeting-the-philadelphia-housing-authority-s-redevelopment-of-the-sharswood-neighborhood August 6, 2015 8:00AM 10:00AM


Thursday, August 6

At 8:00 AM

Center for Architecture | 1218 Arch Street


Our program next week on Thursday, August 6 will focus on the Philadelphia Housing Authority’s massive redevelopment proposal for the Sharswood neighborhood in lower North Philadelphia near the former Norman Blumberg Housing Project. DAG is interested in design issues relating to large public initiatives—and this project has plenty: Urban Design, Housing Policy, Historic Preservation—along with eminent domain, HUD funding, and real estate market behavior as well.


Our program will feature a presentation on the project by Michael Johns AIA LEED AP, PHA’s Senior Executive Vice President for Capital Projects and Development. We will also have a slide show prepared by the Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance based upon a walk of the neighborhood.  Following the presentations there will be a chance for discussion moderated by George Claflen FAIA.

DAG has no position on the PHA project – but it has already become the subject of controversy as discussed in Sandy Smith’s two articles in Philadelphia Magazine. Also recommended is Jared Brey's PlanPhilly piece, which links to five other informative articles. Read these stories below.

  1.  

Suggested Reading


  1. Committee approves Housing Authority plan to acquire 1,300 North Philly properties – City Council’s Committee on Rules approved a plan on Tuesday that would allow the Philadelphia Housing Authority to acquire 1,300 properties in the North Philadelphia neighborhood surrounding the Norman Blumberg Apartments, at 23rd and Jefferson streets.
  2.  
  3. It’s Not too Late to Rescue Sharswood From PHA Eminent Domain Plan – Why PHA plans for Blumberg Apartments could reconcentrate poverty in the neighborhood — the exact opposite of what the community has been working toward. 
  4.  
  5. Sharswood Residents Experiencing PHA Deja Vu – Can the Housing Authority follow through on its pledge to transform an entire neighborhood — but for the better this time?

August 09, 2015 @ 2:00 pm

Meet at entrance to Liberty Place, 17th & Chestnut Sts.

This popular early 20th century style, synonymous with the Jazz Age, has been described as having one foot in the past and one foot in the future. Its sleek appearance foretells the debut of Modernism while its use of Mayan and Aztec motifs echoes the past. Among Philadelphia’s outstanding examples featured on this walk is the flamboyant WCAU Building on the 1600 block of Chestnut Street, now home to the Art Institute of Philadelphia.
