“Mapping the Reading Viaduct Community” 

We are currently learning about the history of the Reading Viaduct and its surrounding areas. We are creating a mapping project that will outline these areas and try to come up with solutions in order to improve the Reading Viaduct community. The proposed Rail Park near the Reading Viaduct has been supported by some interns and opposed by others. Some felt that it did not take into account the local area conditions and others thought it should have more games and activities for young people. Alternatives that we proposed for the Rail Park include: adding station games, a stage for underground music artists to play and gain exposure, a museum of street art, a recovery center for the poor and homeless, and a kid’s restaurant.
