I think Lenfest the younger is involved in that lot at 15th + Chestnut. Lenfest the older ha sgiven most of his fortune away to charity which is to be commended.
Boyd Theater. This is a fatal flaw in the city.
For 30 years the city has let the YMCA building on Chestnut decompose before our eyes. It is disgusting. It would have taken a city worker less than $500- out of the petty cash fund- to go to Home Depot buy some new plywood,paint,screws at least make the place presentable.
Today I was amazed at the weed/trash strewn lots at Broad + Washington and 19th + Walnut ( Castleway lot) Send a couple workers over Nutter, clean up the trash, cut the grass, weed wack, plants some trees and shrubs. Its friggin ridiculous man how lax ,uncaring, lack of common sense this city allows ..
Who the hell wants to look at that mess at Broad + Washington for last 20 years??
