Philly Block Project

Don Chago and Moyas

Summer memories are some of the most unforgettable- the warm, thick air; music filling Kensington’s streets; and those precious extra hours of daylight.

Once a year, however, we can’t wait for the sun to go down, and the sky to light up with fireworks. In this photo, Don Chago and granddaughter Moyas celebrate the Fourth of July on their block of N. 3rd Street. The picture, snapped in 2007, brings us right back to that warm summer night in Philadelphia.
