Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Northern Liberties Neighbors Association and the generous giving of several local foundations, public agencies, and local organizations, this project presents a major opportunity to make strategic public and institutional investments in the public realm to reconnect Philadelphia’s vibrant streets to its long-dormant waterfront. With implementation funding already earmarked, neighborhood residents, workers, and visitors can expect to see some positive changes within the next year and a half. The growing energy to transform the Delaware River waterfront into a publicly-accessible amenity to the city is a vision which depends on small-scale and short-term interventions like this one.
