Walked down to the new Race Street Pier last weekend. It's a great first step toward a vibrant waterfront. Here's the view from the pier looking up at the Ben Franklin Bridge.
Drove behing the Google Map camera the other day. It's nerdy, but it's had such a huge impact on our ability to get quick information about a location.
I thought this was a very clever marketing idea from 777 South Broad..
...it's a great building at Broad and Fitzwater. All rental units, very nice deck and common areas.
Philadelphia's Hazardous Waste Drop Off
I was quietly stockpile old electronics, several dozen paint cans in my basement until I heard about this program in GRID magazine. The Streets Department hosts about 5 drop off "events" a year at locations around the city. It's really easy and a great way to safely clean out the basement and under the kitchen sink not to mention left over DIY craft supplies. It was PPA efficient and easy. I pulled in and several people surrounded my trunk with carts, pulled out everything and sorted it. I was in and out in minutes.
Here's the link for 2010 Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off days and what they accept:
Philadelphia Row House Manual
Philadelphia City Planning Commission has published a 48 page manual for homeowners (and prospective homeowners) written by local architect Rachel Simmons Schade, AIA. It's an incredible resource that covers everything from history and styles of homes in Philadelphia to how we live in them today. It talks about the systems that make up a house, the types of materials and how to maintain and renovate them. There's links to resources including contractors and government programs - think tax abatements, low cost loans! A free PDF version is available here: Row House Manual
