The 76 gas station at 23rd and Union, which has been closed since November, is now open for business.
The shelves are still in the process of being stocked, but the pumps are working and the doors are open. After the closure, Slog declared the station a victim of urban decay, noting that all four corners were mostly vacant. Since then, however, people have been working to open a bakery and coffee shop in the old Philly’s Cheese Steak building.
The SPD Drop-In Center keeps getting smashed up and firebombed.
