TIL that the Chestnut Street East Historic District exists. Explains why 709 hasn't gotten off the ground yet.

Would love if that could be expanded to cover more of Chestnut and maybe even East Market.

Small retail update.
Looks like J. Crew Factory is opening on Chestnut Street, in addition to the new full-line Walnut Street store. And Vans and Brooklinen plan to open in the coming months.

But Councilmember Kenyatta Johnson on Thursday declined to introduce legislation changing parking rules on the part of the avenue in his district, meaning it would be repaved but stay five lanes wide."

this really drives me nuts. People are going to end up getting hit and possibly dying because this idiot can't do the right thing. I have to cross this deathtrap all the time, with my 6-year old if we're going to Chew or Queen Memorial library. Anytime I want to get a pizza and beer from dock street, grab something from small oven, I need to cross that street with the sinking feeling I'm going to get hit. I was thinking I was compromising with the mixed lane proposal, and in the end I was fine with that because it was so much safer.

anyway, bike coalition has a form letter if anyone is interested:

Brooklinen actually just opened up today and it looks like Vans will likely open within a week or so.

I think he’s framing this is an anti-gentrification issue. Absolutely amazing, dude is such a clown.
