Getting the Transportation Glue Back in Philly's Waterfront

Transportation has been called the glue that hold cities together. This oped argues that Philadelphia's waterfront is sorely missing that glue.

"To make the area the economic engine that waterfronts have become in other cities, three kinds of transportation are required:

Simple, direct links to Center City and adjacent neighborhoods.

Seamless connections among existing and potential waterfront attractions.

Convenient links between the Philadelphia and Camden waterfronts, because Camden has attractions of interest to the Philadelphia population, and vice versa."

A new plan from the Delaware River Port Authority could bring that glue back to the area, with a strategy for several miles of the city's waterfront.
