MARC brings mural to East Torresdale

The Major Artery Revitalization Committee along side State Rep. Michael McGeehan (D-173), State Sen. Mike Stack (D-5) and City Councilwoman Joan Krajewski (D-6), dedicated its latest mural to beautify the neighborhood in East Torresdale.

The mural, located on the train station at Grant Avenue and James Street, depicts the old train station with the message “Welcome to East Torresdale.”

During the unveiling, MARC presented $4,700 to the Henry George Fund. MARC ran this year’s Broad Street Run in memory of Henry George, a local man involved in the Holmesburg Boys Club who succumbed to cancer last year at the age of 39. The funds were presented to his family.

Stack also delivered a $100,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to MARC for its continued neighborhood revitalization efforts.
