I read a really fun article lately that made a humorous proposal for a David Lynch monument in Callowhill. Lynch has repeatedly cited Philadelphia, and more specifically Callowhill as the inspiration for everything he’s done to date. I’m envisioning his trademarked zig zag floor pattern covering the path up the Reading Viaduct towards a statue of the alien baby from Eraserhead. It was a silly off the cuff proposal, but whether you like Lynch or not (or perhaps more applicable, whether you GET him or not), he is one of the most prolific film makers of the late 20th Century, and although he’d probably loathe what’s become of his neighborhood, the fact that he credits this industrial relic as his muse could be used to the neighborhood’s advantage.
