The View from the Roof of 448 North 10th Street

August 16, 2017

Every once in a while I get the rare opportunity to explore the roof of a building around Philly. I think this happens because I’ve made my love for this city pretty clear over the last 6+ years of running this blog. And if I love anything more than posting photos of art in the public space around Philly, it’s posting a unique shot of our skyline.

Well this last week, as I was walking through Spring Arts making final notes and changes to my first 2nd Saturday Street Art Tour of the neighborhood, I ran into Kelly from Arts & Crafts Holdings, who I knew through co-organizing Collective Action. (We rented an Arts & Crafts Holdings space at 990 Spring Garden for the first Collective Action event.) And to my delight, she invited me to check out the incredible views from their soon-to-be-open building at 448 North 10th street. Views that include, if you look carefully at the very last photo of this post, the current state of the Rail Park‘s Phase One, which is set to open very soon!

See rooftop shots from the following locations by clicking their names: the Comcast Center, the FMC Tower, Cira Green, the Divine Lorraine, the Goldtex Building, the Touraine, and Rail Park’s future Phase Two!
