It's a shame Penn was allowed to knock down the Civic center. It was a gorgeous building with a ton of history, and could have been modernized for restored hockey programs and an excellent concert venue.

On that, I have to disagree. Gorgeous building, hell yes, but the City needed a larger, modern Convention Center and CHOP/HUP needed the land to expand. Lord knows their success has been a boon to the region.

I took my nursing boards there and used to park for work there. Incredible how it’s all grown and changed in 3 decades!
