“If you had a 5,000 square foot building and large green space, what would you want to see in it that would benefit the neighborhood?”
I spent a lot of time asking that question as I met with neighbors, clergy, nonprofit directors, shop owners, and educators living and working in the Fishtown/Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia in 2011 when Beacon was at the brink of closing or reinventing itself.
