Inga Saffron Says

Regarding the delightfully hidden Renaissance-style arch bridging the span between the Lit Bros. Building and the Cast Iron Building: "Despite the gritty intrusions, the alley remains an intensely resonant space. With plans for an apartment tower on top of Lits, I can imagine it as a pedestrian passageway, perhaps outfitted with cafés and shops, a tribute to Philadelphia's own renaissance." [The Inquirer]
