Video Shows Why the Rail Park is Important

This amazing new video by Good Motion Project for the Friends of the Rail Park fundraiser features a host of Philadelphia luminaries and plenty of cogent, passionate and smart arguments for why we should transform Philadelphia’s abandoned rail viaducts into a Rail Park. This project would create a beautiful, 55-block long green way, through the heart of the city, uninterrupted by a single cross street. They are raising money for the project now, and once you see this video, you will want to support it. 

Rail Park Fundraiser at Union Transfer

This Wednesday, December 4, an evening-long fundraiser in support of Phase One of the Rail Park will be held at Union Transfer. Join Friends of the Rail Park for an extraordinary evening of entertainment filled with opportunities to learn more about the project. The evening starts at 6 p.m. with a cocktail party and fashion show hosted by WXPN's Michaela Majoun. The reception will present a fashion show curated by Melissa D'Agostino featuring Arcadia, Commonwealth Proper, NINObrand by Bela Shehu and Bus Stop. Enjoy performances by Lux Arati (where fire meets belly dancing) and New Sound Brass (a miracle of 2 street). Catering is being donated by 13th Street Kitchens (Prohibition Tap Room, Café Lift and Bufad). If that is not enough entertainment for one evening, there is more to come.
