BOAT HOUSE ROW: Located along the east bank of the Schuylkill River on Kelly Drive (named after famous Philadelphia oarsman John B. Kelly, Jr) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are boathouses, which house racing shells. All of the ten houses have their own history and date back to 1860. These structures are seen as the "center of rowing" throughout the country. Rowers from these houses compete at every level, including local clubs, high schools, colleges, summer racing programs, and interenational-level athletics. Boathouse Row is a National Historic landmark and was entered onto the national Register of Historic Places in 1987. Local universities including Drexel, Saint Joseph's, Villanova, Penn, laSalle and Temple row from these houses. Several major rowing regattas, including the Dad Vail, Stotesbury Cup, the Navy Day, the Independence Day, and the Head of the Schuylkill regatta are hosted.

Love Park was created in 1960 at the eastern end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and across from City Hall. In the 1980's it was discovered by street skateboarders as a popular form of the sport that uses natural urban features such as curving stairs and ledges, rather than manufactured ramps. Some of the best skateboarders in the country have skated at the park and it was the centerpiece of ESPN's X games. Robert Indiana created the LOVE sculpture. This images was created 5 days before Christmas, 2009 during the first of four huge storms that rocked the East Coast in the winter of 2009-2010.
