Yesterday at Coal Piers Photo Shoot : The Grafitti Bridge, aka Pier 124, aka Coal Piers, aka Coal Pier #18, aka Philly's Secret Museum of Grafitti Art..I have found all of these descriptions from different sources.Philadelphia was once a center of coal transportation, mainly in the Port Richmond area and the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company would transport anthracite coal from the region’s mines to its Port Richmond coal station where rail cars on a high pier would dump coal into ships and barges stationed below. This area operated as a coal pier for Conrail until 1991, when they moved their coal operation to Baltimore. Conrail still owns the ever decaying  property but that same feature makes it an ideal place for street and grafitti artists to practice their craft. It's a favorite for photographers and I've ventured in from time to time to get some shots of the everchanging spot.

Philadelphia International Flower Show The world’s largest indoor flower show : The Philadelphia Flower Show is deeply rooted in the history of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), which was founded in 1827. Charter members brought interesting plants to display at meetings and, eventually, to share with the public. In the 1960s, PHS took over management of the Philadelphia Flower Show, also encouraging participation by amateurs — individuals and garden clubs.<br />
<br />
With the help of hundreds of volunteers the show raises significant funds to support PHS’s community greening programs and other civic initiatives in Philadelphia.

Philly Interesting Scenics : Philadelphia  is the largest city in Pennsylvania, sixth-most-populous city in the United States and the Fifty-First most populous city in the world.
In 2008, the population of the city proper was estimated to be more than 1.54 million, while the Greater Philadelphia metropolitan area's population of 5.8 million made it the country's fifth largest. The city, which lies about 45 miles  southwest of New York City, is the nation's fourth-largest urban area by population and its fourth-largest consumer media market as ranked by the Nielsen Media Research.
It is the county seat of Philadelphia County, with which it is coterminous. Popular nicknames for Philadelphia include Philly and The City of Brotherly Love, from the literal meaning of the city's name in Greek (Greek: Φιλαδέλφεια (/pʰilaˈdelpʰeːa/, Modern Greek: /filaˈðɛlfia/) "brotherly love", compounded from philos (φίλος) "love", and adelphos (ἀδελφός) "brother").
