William Penn’s city was planned as a utopian ideal: a grid of broad streets to promote green urban living for settlers to this 17th-century colony. While Penn grew disillusioned, his design lives on in Philadelphia and around the world. The plan continues to have a strong and positive impact on the life of Center City, Philadelphia, says Gallery, who worked with the leading post-war planner Edmund Bacon at the Philadelphia City Planning Commission in the 1960s, then as founding director of the city’s Office of Housing and Community Development in the 1970s.

When William Penn founded the colony of Pennsylvania in 1682, he created a visionary plan for its principal city, Philadelphia, and the immediate surrounding region. Over the past 325 years Penn's plan of the city has been modified by many individuals to reflect an evolving vision of a city both beautiful and practical.

The Planning of Center City Philadelphia: From William Penn to the Present traces these three centuries of planning history, from Penn's original concept to the design of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway—one of the significant monuments of the City Beautiful movement in the United States—to the mid-20th century urban renewal efforts that made Philadelphia a national leader in city planning and urban revitalization. Richly illustrated with historic maps and photographs, the book also includes brief biographical sketches of nine Philadelphians who have contributed significantly to the practice of city planning, including Paul Philippe Cret, Edmund N. Bacon, David A. Wallace, and Denise Scott Brown. Also included are five walking tours of Center City, where the results of this planning history can be seen and experienced most easily: Old City, Society Hill, City Hall East, City Hall West (Penn Center), and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

The tours contain easily readable maps as well as photographs and descriptions of the most significant architectural landmarks in each area.

I was hoping for much much more, particularly drawings and maps. The bios in the back were nice, but nothing beyond what's readily available.

Much smaller book than I anticipated
