superfresh“This will be an anchor for the neighborhood,” Bart Blatstein announced this morning at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Superfresh at the Shops at Schmidts in Northern Liberties. “A neighborhood is not complete without a supermarket.”

And of course, long-waiting customers who were excited to finally have access to fresh produce, a vast selection of items, and a pharmacy.

Get on over there and fill up a cart! We are so proud to welcome Superfresh to the neighborhood as one of the many conveniences and highlights of living in Northern Liberties.

Phillies Unveil New Harry Kalas Memorial Statue At Citizens Bank Park at Last Nights Game

297700_529266814436_153500633_30797097_3389945_nDuring a pre-game ceremony,  The Philadelphia Phillies officially unveiled the new 7.5-foot bronze memorial statue of the Hall of Fame broadcaster, Harry Kalas.

Kalas, who passed away in 2009, was part of the Phillies’ broadcast team for an incredible 38 years. The concept of the statue was presented this spring to the Phillies as a gift from Dear Harry, Inc., a fan-based group organized solely to create a statue dedicated to the memory of Mr. Kalas.

Special guests included members of the Kalas family as well as more than two dozen Phillies alumni.

As Lawrence J. Nowlan, the statue’s sculptor, said, “Harry gave all he had to the fans here in Philadelphia. For 38 years he treated us with nothing but love and respect. Being able to play a small part in cementing his legacy in our city and beyond has been a dream come true.”

The statue is permanently located on the ballpark’s Main Concourse behind Section 141, down the left field line, near Harry the K’s Restaurant.
