Penns Landing Park Over I-95 to Delaware; NFL Draft 2017 in Philly; Man Records in HS Locker Room

Mayor Jim Kenney unveiled plans for a multi-million dollar park that would bridge the gap between Old City/Society Hill and the Delaware River waterfront. The 11-acre green space between Chestnut and Walnut Streets would act as a cap over I-95 and Columbus Blvd. Today, the only way for a pedestrian to get to the river from that area of the city would be to walk across the Chestnut or Market Street extensions and then down stairs. This project would create a whole new space and finally provide a real connection between the city and the water. The city will provide $90 million of the $225 million project.

The NFL Draft will be held this year in Philadelphia from April 27 to 29 and will turn the Art Museum steps and Benjamin Franklin Parkway into the NFL's largest fan festival ever. A 3,000-seat outdoor theater will be constructed in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art which will house the stage and podium where draft picks are announced. Tickets to the theater will be made available in a lottery coming soon. Stretching beyond the theater will be the NFL Draft Experience exhibits. This area will be the size of 25 football fields and is free and open to the public. Jumbo screens throughout will broadcast the draft. Other attractions include mock locker rooms, a museum and memorabilia, the Vince Lombardy trophy, combine skills challenge, network TV sets, and more. It will be open noon to 11 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Officials expect 200,000 football fans to turn out for the event and bring an estimated $80 million in economic impact. Philadelphia last hosted the NFL Draft in 1961.

A Montgomery County man has been arrested for recording inside a high school locker room with a cell phone. It happened around 11 a.m. on February 18th. Pennsylvania State Police say that John Lyons Jr. of Collegeville entered the boy's locker room at Perkiomen Valley High School on the 500 block of Gravel Pike in Perkiomen Township and began reporting. At the time of the incident the school was hosting the Perkiomen Invitational Swim Meet. Girls from area swim teams were using the boy's locker room. The students were clothed in either swimsuits or street clothes according to the school district. Lyons was arrested and has been charged with Invasion of Privacy and related charges.
