Hope to see people out on Broad Street today. Would be great if they could move the ferris wheel from Broad Street to Penns Landing - maybe add it as a full time attraction in the city. I know other cities have them. Once again, today should be a fun day of day drinking and music - along with the Phils and Flyers - http://www.pifa.org/streetfair. -
As always, if you are thinking of buying or selling..... - Mark
