Thread: Greetings from Philadelphia, PA

    Greetings from Philadelphia, PA

    I am following protocol regarding introductions for new members. I have been involved in urban design issues for about 20 years. My formal training at Parsons New York was in garden design and interiors. After working in a landscape architecture firm in Manhattan, I started my own company in 1987 and have since worked on a broad range of projects including the design of a large urban community park in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia. Presently, I am working on influencing the re-writing of the zoning code in my adopted city, and have posted a thread on the subject titled Urban Street Corners.

    Most of my work today involves design and consultation for restaurants, retail and historic building facades.

    I look forward to engaging with this online planning community!

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.

    A bunch of us were in Philly back in April for the APA Conference over the Nor'easter storm weekend.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    welcome from massachusetts!

    i was one of the planners visiting Philly that JNA mentioned. besides being soggy for a good portion of the visit, we had a great time.

    Welcome from NW Ohio. We look forward to your future postings. Off-topic....have you tried to patch that crack in the Liberty Bell?
