Ramping up the riverfront

While some folks don’t dig the whole riverfront shtick, there are plenty of others who are greeting the budding transformation of the Schuylkill River area with loud peals of delight.
Personally, I find the Schuylkill to be rather boring, except when it rises up to flood parts of our town. It’s not exactly a majestic waterway, but the RiverPlace Development Corp. is working hard to give the old river some charisma and charm.
Projects including bridge repairs, solar lights, bike paths, trail signs, cherry trees and a boat landing are the first steps toward migrating our citizens, as well as illegal aliens, down by the river.
The people involved obviously are wired together and whistle as they go about their work. They need to whistle, as well as drive their fingernails into their palms and wiggle their toes, just to prevent themselves from fainting dead away at the sheer tedium of the work.
