The Democratic National Convention is happening in Philadelphia this week, specifically South Philadelphia. In Center City, scattered events and protests have been happening from time to time.
I ran down to the Well Fargo Center and stadiums last night and as far down as Oregon Avenue tonight. It was a nice, traffic-free way to get a feel for what’s happening, what the mood is, what’s getting people excited, etc. On the way back, I watched/listened to President Clinton’s remarks on Twitter.
It’s a good week for the city.
