Help Build the Rail Park!
Giving Tuesday is one week from today! Support the Center City District Foundation and contribute to complete construction of the Rail Park, on track to open in early 2018! The Rail Park will be Philadelphia’s first elevated green space, offering breathtaking views of Center City’s skyline. Poised to become Philadelphia’s next great park, the Rail Park will foster new investment in the surrounding Callowhill neighborhood and will be an anchor for a diverse, mixed-use, mixed-income, live-work neighborhood unlike any other in the city. Become a part of this transformational initiative and support the Rail Park on November 28 as a part of Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving! Visit SupportCCDF.org to learn more about this important project and make a donation.

Two Museums- One Ticket!
Philadelphia’s Museum of the American Revolution and the National Constitution Center have teamed up to offer visitors a joint ticket that includes admission to both institutions for a discounted price. Just blocks apart, the two museums tell the story of the American founding, as the early stirrings of rebellion and the Declaration of Independence led to the creation of the United States Constitution. The joint tickets are now available at AmRevMuseum.org, ConstitutionCenter.org, or in person at both museums. The adult joint ticket is $29, youth joint ticket is $19 (savings of $4), and a family pack (2 adults and 2 kids) is $90.
