On Friday, the Philadelphia Historical Commission voted to add the front facade of the Blue Horizon boxing venue on North Broad Street to the local Register of Historic Places. However, the Commission rejected a nomination to protect the interior auditorium. "I love the Blue Horizon," said Vernoca L. Michael, an owner of the building and the former CEO of the boxing venue. "But I also am a realist. It would not have been cost-effective to [have the interior historically protected.]" [PlanPhilly]
