I like the idea of The Porch at 30th St. Station. But it's so sterile yet--chairs and tables on concrete. I hope this new money will bring in a TON of GREENERY, which the space sorely needs.

Karlsruhe Hauptbahnhof bike parking lot (detail!). This small German university town is biker paradise. Everyone but everyone rides bikes. Bikes parked at the train station -- bike crazy town! by sokref1, via Flickr

Green Line Cafe, 43rd and Baltimore Ave. in West Philly (on the 34 Green Line trolley line). One of my favorite places for coffee and meetings.

Karlsruhe, Germany -- cute college town in Southwest part of the country (near French border at Strasbourg). We rode this tram to the top of a little mountain where there is a 13th Century tower with a view of the Rhine and France beyond. Turmbergbahn little tram to the big tower | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

8 Beautiful Bookstores in Residential Spaces

Domestic bookstores -- stores in people's houses that function also as community meeting/work spaces...what a great idea!

Did you know the Barnes has a webcam of its new home on the parkway, a birdseye view from a building nearby (probably the Free Library of Philadelphia on 20th St.). They update the picture on the website every 15 minutes. (Like there's something new every quarter hour?) But the picture is nice!
