ULI Spring Meeting in Philadelphia (April 2016)

The City of Brotherly Love welcomed WDC with dinner+cocktails at The Continental in Philly’s Old City neighborhood near the famous Liberty Bell. The Passyunk neighborhood was the site of our Friday morning tour. A rapidly emerging area of South Philly, one of its main thoroughfares was recently deemed a “best foodie spot” by Food & Wine magazine. Lindsey Scannapieco, principal of Scout Development, led a tour of the Edward Bok Technical School, which her team is in the process of renovating into a creative incubator space for local businesses (many of which are owned by women) and a rooftop café/bar/event space. After lunch at a favorite local Italian restaurant, WDC activities concluded with an optional tour of WHYY Radio where we not only got to met Terry Gross of Fresh Air, but also heard firsthand from WHYY Director and staff about what makes the station so beloved by all of us from around the world.
