The open-spaces advocacy group VIADUCTgreene, whose capitalization we just mastered about 10 minutes ago, has now changed its name to Friends of the Rail Park. Guys, really?
At any rate, it does make more sense as a name. So let’s introduce them officially: Philadelphia, here are your newest friends:
Friends of the Rail Park is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to cultivate visions and advocate for a continuous three-mile linear park and recreation path in Philadelphia, connecting many neighborhoods and cultural institutions to Fairmount Park along the historic elevated Reading Viaduct and City Branch rail cut of the former Philadelphia and Reading Railroad.
Their latest plans are bold, to say the least.
