Remembrance of Things Past
Franklin Square was a public park, bordered by South Front Street, Fleet Street (the continuation of Partition Street), Ferry Street, and the railroad tracks. It ceased to exist during Urban Renewal. This morning, a reader sent me this picture of Franklin Square. The vantage point is roughly in front of what is now the Half Moon. Visible beyond the park are the tops of buildings on the other side of the railroad tracks and the buildings bordering the park along Fleet Street.
