17 old photos of the holidays in Philly
From Gallery Mall to Rittenhouse Square, hereâ€™s how Philadelphia used to deck its halls
Editorâ€™s note: This article was originally published in December 2016 and has been updated with the most recent information.
Philly does the holidays well, as evidenced by all of these places that have really gone above and beyond to deck themselves out for the special season. After all, the city has quite a bit of experience of going all out during the holidays, from Wanamakerâ€™s (now Macyâ€™s) to City Hall to South 13th Street.
But these old holiday photos we found show that some things have changed over the years. Apparently, Reyburn Plaza (now Thomas Paine Plaza) used to transform into a Christmas wonderland for kids. And, of course, the old Gallery Mall in Market East (the future Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia) used to pull its weight during the holiday season, too.
And yet, some things never change. Rittenhouse Square has always had its special tree lighting, and SEPTAâ€™s Jolley Trolley has been a welcome delight for decades.
Here now is a collection of some of the city best holiday moments, ranging from the late 1920s up until the 1980s.

New trail will safely connect Tacony Creek Park at Roosevelt Boulevard
Construction has started on the vital link
Come early next year, two halves of the Tacony Creek Park will finally be connected by a safer pedestrian trail after being separated for decades by Roosevelt Boulevard.
The city broke ground on phase 2 of the Tacony Creek Trail on Thursday morning. The 0.3-mile trail will connect the north and south sections of the 300-acre park, which has long been divided by the multi-lane and dangerous Roosevelt Boulevard.
The trail will be located along the Tacony Creek, then continue down under the Roosevelt Boulevard overpass so that hikers and cyclists will no longer have to cross the road.
â€œTacony Creek Park is at the center of some of the most ethnically diverse and economically challenged neighborhoods in Philadelphia,â€ said Julie Slavet, executive director of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership, Inc., in a statement.
â€œRoosevelt Boulevard is a serious barrier that creates division and limits access for these communities. To have a safe way to travel within the park is priceless for our neighbors.â€
The trail follows phase 1, which was completed in 2013. Another portion of the trail in the northern section dates back to the 1970s. When it opens, the whole trail will stretch 3.2 miles, not only creating a safer connection, but also closing a gap on the Circuit Trails and connect to the East Coast Greenway.
Hereâ€™s a map of the whole trail:

11 Philly holiday gifts to give this season
From custom wooden maps to other jawn made by local artists
If you havenâ€™t made it out to one of Phillyâ€™s many, many holiday markets and pop-up shops to do all of your gift shopping, never fear. There are still more than two weeks to go until the big day, and these days some of the most thoughtful gifts you can give are just a click away.
Take these 11 items, for example. From an adult coloring book to a â€œJawnamentâ€ (what you get when you combine â€œjawnâ€ with â€œornamentâ€), they all offer something a little different. But they do have one thing in common: Philadelphia, a city in which us Curbed Philly folks love to live.

Camdenâ€™s waterfront baseball stadium will be demolished
Rutgers will replace the troubled stadium with athletic fields
Sitting in debt and without a home team to serve for the past two years, Camdenâ€™s baseball stadium at the foot of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge will now meet the wrecking ball.
Rutgers' board of governors voted unanimously on Thursday to move forward with a $15 million plan to demolish Campbellâ€™s Stadium and replace it with three athletic fields for its university. Itâ€™s a partnership with the state of New Jersey, the City of Camden, and the Camden County Improvement Authority.
The decision comes just 16 years after the $20 million Campbellâ€™s Stadium opened on Camdenâ€™s waterfront and was hailed as the start of a promising future for the cityâ€™s waterfront. But in the coming years the venue, home to the minor league baseball team the Riversharks, fell into debt. It didnâ€™t help when the now-defunct team moved out two years ago, leaving the stadium without a major source of revenue.
In 2015, Camden stepped in and bought the stadium to save it from foreclosure.
Rutgers plans to put $7.5 million toward the new athletic fields, which will span the entirety of the property along the waterfront. Camden plans to apply for state funding to foot the rest of the bill.
Thereâ€™s no set timeline when Campbellâ€™s Stadium will officially be demolished. But when all is said and done, the athletic fields will be neighbors to the nearby $1 billion mixed-use development spearheaded by Liberty Property Trust, the Sixersâ€™ training facility, and Subaruâ€™s headquarters.

The iconic log cabin in Northern Liberties is for sale
Own an old home amid a sea of new construction
Amid the sea of new construction that continues to pop up in Northern Liberties remains the iconic â€œLog Cabin Houseâ€ at 872-78 N. Lawrence Street. Now, after decades of stopping passersby in their tracks, itâ€™s for sale.
The log cabin is an immediate standout for obvious reasons, and given the cityâ€™s history itâ€™d be easy to assume that it dates back to the 17th century. But this cabin is not historicâ€”it was built in 1985 by artist Jeff Thomas as both a home and an art project, listing agent Lisa Silveri tells Curbed Philly.
Thomas built it at a time when Northern Liberties was struggling with blight, decades before it would experience an incredible resurgence and building boom where homes now ask $500,000 or more. He lived in the neighborhood for 33 years, witnessing the transformation first hand from the log cabin.
The 1,152-square-foot property itself is pretty minimal. There is one bedroom and one bathroom. But that character!
Built for $50,000, today itâ€™s on the market asking $639,000 and is being sold as-is.
Here are some photos of the property taken a few years ago when Curbed Philly last eyed this memorable home:
