Oh do we have a special Throwback Thursday for you! As you know, The Grove of Park Champions was recently dedicated at The Belmont Plateau. In that post, we made the obvious reference "Summertime" from DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince. While watching the video, we noticed that the guys "drive slow, so everybody sees" them pass a ton of great Philadelphia landmarks. What better way to show them off than with a map? Outside of the classic cookout dance scenes, we love that Jazz and Will slowly cruised through Philly on a flatbed truck during summertime rush hour, even if it, as Jazz said, "got [them] a couple of middle fingers pointed our way," in the process. And so, crank up your speakers and travel along with two Philly legends as they tour you around Philly circa 1991.
