SAVE THE DATE

Off the rails save the date

WHERE

915 Spring Garden St.

TIME

6—8 Main Event
8—10 After Party

Since Phase 1 of the Rail Park opened last year, our growth has been off the charts—from the size of our team, to the diversity of our supporters, to the fullness of the plants at the park itself.

So we’re hosting a fundraiser to help support the future of the Rail Park and celebrate everyone who helped make our progress possible so far. We’re honoring people who have helped advocate for public greenspace, locally and nationally. And we’re building support for this project to grow even further.

HONORING

New York City, North Jersey and Northern Virginia are big hubs for internet, and a lot of that traffic has been passing through Philadelphia. NYIIX installed the infrastructure needed to make the exchange point in Netrality’s location on North Broad Street at the end of April. (Netrality also operates data centers in Houston, Kansas City, St. Louis and Chicago.)

There’s still some jockeying for position among the various terms used to describe the neighborhood roughly bounded by 5th Street on the east, Broad Street on the west, Vine Street on the south and Mount Vernon Street on the north.

Callowhill is what the planners call it.

Real estate agents, or at least many of them, like the Loft District.

Other agents prefer Spring Arts, and the more creative types have dubbed it the Eraserhood.

By the time one real estate developer is done fixing it up, however, we may be calling it the “Arts & Crafts District.”
