Bye Noam Chomsky Mural

Naom Chomsky Mural

Image from

A couple of years ago I posted a picture of one of my favorite murals in Philly.  The Noam Chomsky mural on 19th & Fairmount Ave. will be replaced with new units.  "According to Plan Philly, the mural honoring one of Philly’s – and the world’s – finest thinkers will soon be covered up by 15 new rental apartments, seven parking spaces, and “some type of food retail space.” -- You can read this take on it

I for one think that street art is temporary and the evolution of building and neighborhood renovations are inevitable. Sad to see this one go when there are tons of TERRIBLE murals in Philadelphia.  See Broad and Spring Garden....
