Philly, suburbs
have much in common

    A Temple team surveyed the region to learn about housing, socioeconomic and household trends.
    Whether the issue is racial diversity, taxes, threats to the environment or family involvement in the schools, counties surrounding Philadelphia and their residents have more in common with their counterparts in the city than is generally understood, Temple researchers said.

The rise and fall of Atlantic City

    New professor Bryant Simon traces the iconic city’s history in a new book.
    His hands swathed in white cotton gloves, Bryant Simon gently pulled out a decades-old, black-and-white newspaper photograph from a file in Temple’s Urban Archives and studied it intently.

This Week in Temple History
September 16, 1982

   The Temple Times reported that eight trucks that once lined 13th street would be concentrated in a new “vendors’ mall” between what is now the Student Center and Paley Library. Campus planners ripped a 40- by 150-foot strip out of Parking Lot 2 (behind the current Tuttleman Learning Center) and created a new lunchtime gathering place they hoped would provide “a café kind of environment.”
   The University also built stands for two vendors not included in the original restructuring: The “bagel stand” and “soft pretzel stand” at 13th Street and Berks Walk are now popular fixtures on Main Campus.
   The former “vendors’ mall” has since become known as the vendors pad at 12th and Berks streets. This fall, much like 22 years ago, construction on 13th Street has required vendors in these areas to be moved to Montgomery Avenue east of 13th.
