A LOVE LETTER TO PHILADELPHIA
Today some will celebrate Valentine’s Day with ride on the Blue Line to see the Steve Powers (ESPO) 2009 project, ”A Love Letter for You*. A series of “love letter murals" that span 50 West Philadelphia rooftops (from 63rd to 45th) that "collectively represents a conversation from guy to his girl, from a artist to his hometown". Some will take engagement photos underneath their favorite one, just like every year since. Some will just pass by on their way home. But these sweet, sentimental and often funny murals are Philly wearing it’s heart on its sleeve. Those train rides that highlight the Love Letters still happen every Saturday and Sunday. Check it out here.
