PHILADELPHIA’S RITTENHOUSE SQUARE
Abington Township Public Library, Sunday, September 21 at 3pm
PHILADELPHIA’S RITTENHOUSE SQUARE
From Swamp to Swank
An Illustrated Lecture by Robert Morris Skaler
Sunday, September 21, 2014 at 2 p.m.
Abington Free Library, Community Room
Register for this free event at: the Library Office, Abington Free Library, 1030 Old York Road, Abington, Pennsylvania 19001, 215-885-5180, ext. 15, kburnham@mclinc.org, or online here.
Rittenhouse Square was the home of Philadelphia Society during America’s Gilded Age.
Established by William Penn in 1682 as the South-West Square and renamed in 1825, Rittenhouse Square and its environs changed from a swampy isolated district of brickyards and workers’ shanties into the city’s most elegant and prestigious neighborhood between 1845 and 1865.
The brownstone and marble mansions on the Square itself were inhabited by the city’s wealthiest and most prestigious families, with names like Weightman, Biddle, Cassatt, Drexel, Van Rensselaer, and Stotesbury.
As Philadelphia’s upper classes fled to the suburbs during the 20th century, their mansions were replaced by skyscrapers or taken over by cultural institutions like the Philadelphia Art Alliance and the Curtis Institute of Music.
While only a few original mansions remain on Rittenhouse Square today, it is still the center of a lively, upscale neighborhood and a prime example of an urban green space. Despite the many changes that have overtaken it, Rittenhouse Square remains just as Jane Jacobs described it in 1961: “A beloved, successful, much-used park, one of Philadelphia’s greatest assets”
... and it was recently named one of the top ten public places in North America.
 
Robert Morris Skaler is a forensic architect and historian, He is the author of West Philadelphia University City to 52nd St, Philadelphia’s Broad Street: South and North, and Society Hill and Old City for Arcadia Publishing. The book’s co-author, Thomas H. Keels, is a Philadelphia writer and historian who has authored Chestnut Hill, and Philadelphia Graveyards and Cemeteries for Arcadia and Forgotten Philadelphia.
A book signing by co-author Robert Skaler will follow the lecture.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Slavoj Zizek - Event: A Philosophical Journey Through A Concept
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Tuesday, September 23 at 7:30pm
Event: A Philosophical Journey Through A Concept Slavoj Zizek “The most dangerous philosopher in the West” (The New Republic), Slovenian Slavoj Zizek is a towering figure in Marxist ideology, psychoanalysis, and social theory. The author of dozens of books and articles and the subject of a score of interviews and documentaries, his best known volumes in English include The Sublime Object of Ideology and First as Tragedy, Then as Farce. “The Elvis of cultural theory” (Chronicle of Higher Education), Zizek adopts a radical style in his newspaper op-eds and academic works, which has earned him an international following and relevancy. His new book asks fundamental questions about what is really happening when an Event occurs, whether Events are interconnected, and if we are really agents of our own fates. Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a FREE Event; no tickets or reservations are required.
