The Rail Park in Philadelphia

The Rail Park in Philadelphia.
by Inna Race
Are you available to do a tour of the future Philadelphia Rail Park that will be soon the equivalent of the High Line in NYC and La Promenade Plantee in Paris?  The 1-st elevated Rail Park in the world La Promenade Plantee was actually started in Paris in 1988.

The tour is created to bring more awareness and get strong support about this incredible project since it is really going to change and transform Philadelphia and make it more international like NYC and Paris.

Without fanfare, the city and the state have included millions of dollars in their latest budgets toward the first phase of the project: transforming the quarter-mile railroad “spur” that curves through the city’s burgeoning Loft District and dead-ends onto North Broad Street.
