37th Street

The first image is of the construction fence at the site of 3675 Market Street, scheduled to open in 2017. The four dark pads in the sidewalk mark the location where 37th Street will be reintroduced to the street grid of Philadelphia after an absence of 55 years.  The second image is the Sanborn map from 1962, showing the original position of 37th Street before it was vacated for construction of the University City High School:
