Historic Church Is On the Chopping Block

April 23rd, 2018 Shannon O'Donnell Comments Off on Historic Church Is On the Chopping Block

Usually, the saying "out with the old, in with the new" holds true for most things. Sometimes, however, something shiny and new isn't preferable to something with age and beauty on its side. Such is the case with Christ Memorial Reformed Episcopal Church, which a developer plans to knock down so he can build apartments on the site. Christ Memorial Reformed Episcopal is one of Philadelphia's oldest and most distinctive churches. It was fashioned in the Gothic Victorian style, with peaked...Read More

Rail Park On Schedule to FINALLY Open!

April 18th, 2018 Shannon O'Donnell Comments Off on Rail Park On Schedule to FINALLY Open!

I think this is the third time I have written a headline about Rail Park opening, but this time it's serious... there's an opening date for the raised park that Philadelphia has been anticipating for years. The park was already supposed to be open by now, but city engineers called into question the structural integrity of a railroad bridge that is over 100 years old. The bridge is of tremendous importance to the project, as it will form the entrance to...Read More

Junior-Sized Baseball Park is for Youngest Phillies Fans

April 17th, 2018 Shannon O'Donnell Comments Off on Junior-Sized Baseball Park is for Youngest Phillies Fans

For many families, love for the local sports team starts in childhood. When a kiddo sees mom and dad rooting for the Phillies, they become fans themselves. Before you know it, you have a tiny diehard wearing his or her licensed jersey and baseball cap and, in the grandest Philly tradition, talking smack to other kids at school who dare to like rival teams. The Phillies have catered to their youthful fans with a miniature baseball park that's right next to...Read More

World’s Largest Wawa Coming to Old City

April 16th, 2018 Shannon O'Donnell Comments Off on World’s Largest Wawa Coming to Old City

If there's one thing Philadelphia loves (other than cheesesteaks, the Eagles, climbing streetlamps, and donuts), it's Wawa. Even as a Florida native, I know that Wawa is amazing. Their sandwiches are bomb, their coffee is delish, and don't get me started on the Sizzlis... they're the best way to start a morning, as far as I'm concerned. Philadelphians worship on the altar of Wawa, and in turn, the Wawa gods - I guess that would mean corporate - have seen...Read More
