LIBERTY TALES – PHILADELPHIA , PENNSYLVANIA – FIREHOUSE PARK

The  first  thing  you  notice  as  you  walk  down  Arch  Street  in  Philadelphia  is  that  humongous  bust  of  Benjamin  Franklin .

This  being  Philadelphia ,  be  surprised  if  you  DON’T  see  anything  that  has  to  do  with  Benjamin  Franklin .

This  happens  to  be  a  working  firehouse  as  you  can  tell  by  the  fire trucks  getting  ready  and  firemen  going  about  their  business .

But  look  a  little  bit  closer .

To the  right  of  the  firehouse ,  there  seems  to  be  a  small  public  park .

On  this  particular  day ,  as the  temperature  is near  90  degrees ,  people  are  cooling  themselves  off  by  sitting  on  benches  near a fountain  that seems  to  sprout  out  water all day.

Some people  are  even  dipping  their  toes  into  the  cooling  water .

The  sign  by  the  entrance  tells  you  that  this  isn’t  the  place  to bring  your  dog .

It’s  not  a  doggie  park ,  it’s  a  people  park .

It’s  away  from  the  tourists  area  of  the  Old  City .

As  I’m  walking  by ,  I  wonder  if  anyone  who lives  and  works  in  this  area  knows  about  this  little  bit  of  peace  and  tranquility  in the  middle  of  Liberty  Bell  City ?

Somehow ,  I  doubt  it . FB_IMG_1500994739798
