Center City’s sidewalks are bustling with workers, residents and visitors; 433 outdoor seating venues are brimming with customers while many seek cooler interiors in 450 fine-dining restaurants.
Center City District’s four parks (Dilworth, Sister Cities, Cret and John F. Collins) and 400 planters and hanging baskets are bursting with color, while 750 street trees have helped reduce oppressive summer heat. (See pages 4 & 5).
Two more parks are adding to the mix: the first phase of the Rail Park opened on June 14 and CCD is assisting in the remaking of the Philadelphia Holocaust Memorial, opening this fall on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. (See page 7.)
