Did you know Canada geese were big fans of Iron Chef Jose Garces’s pork belly bao buns? At least that appears the case as a goose has built a nest just above the Chifa stand at Spruce Street Harbor Park.
The Spruce Goose has been nesting on the container since it was installed, around May 15th. The Delaware River Waterfront Corp’s Emma Fried-Cassoria says no one has gotten a good look inside the nest to see if there are any eggs or goslings in the nest. But as soon as we find out, we’ll let you know.
In the fifth episode of his “Uncover Philly” series, videographer Cory J. Popp brings us the first weekend of Spruce Street Harbor Park (SSHP)—a perfect minute-and-thirty-second video to get lost in if you haven’t had the chance to check out the glowing oasis on the Delaware Waterfront.
The flick captures everything we’ve heard about SSHP so far: the outdoor roller rink, the food trucks, the hammocks. But it really gets into its groove around the 16-second mark, when the city goes dark and those hanging, light saber-like tree lights illuminate the communal spaces underneath. It’s like something out of a fairyland. Delaware River Waterfront Corporation definitely turned up the notch on SSHP this year. Check out the video above, then head out to experience it for yourself if you haven’t already.
