Description

YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW – WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD’S PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE?

What makes The Rail Park and vicinity so special? How does its history relate to what we see today? Learn more about the viaduct, the railroad and the surrounding area, and what we can do to preserve this unique neighborhood.

With Harry Kyriakodis, historian and writer; Kate Otte, designer at Cloud Gehshan; and Patrick Grossi, Director of Advocacy, Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia. Moderated by Nancy Goldenberg, Executive Director, Center City District Foundation.

Build The Rail Park Happy Hour is FREE. Please kindly REGISTER.

GET ON BOARD!

In October 2016, the Center City District (CCD) broke ground on Phase 1 of The Rail Park. Stretching from Broad Street at Noble to Callowhill between 11th and 12th Streets, this historic quarter mile will soon become our city’s newest elevated public park, with a distinctive design that celebrates our industrial past and cultural heritage.

As the excitement builds, join us on the first Wednesday of every month from 5PM-8PM as we grow awareness of the project and raise funds to close a $700,000 funding gap for Phase 1 construction. 20% of all sales from each monthly Build the Rail Park Happy Hour, hosted at The Trestle Inn, will go directly to support construction.

The May 3rd event features:

  • $7 Ryed The Rails Cocktail
  • Happy Hour Specials
  • Go Go by Trestle Special Ruby Tuesday
  • Presentations from local experts

So grab some friends and get on board!
