P'unk BurgerBetter burgers with help from the neighbors: P'unk Burger kicks South Philly burger culture up several notches by keeping it local.

It's been eight years since Marlo and Jason Dilks took pizza in Philadelphia to places it had never been before with SLiCE, their affordable gourmet pizzeria at 10th and Federal streets, just west of the Italian Market in Passyunk Square.

As their pizza continued to gather accolades and fans, the Dilkses had an epiphany: What they did for pizza, they could do for burgers too. And they could bolster the South Philly economy while doing it.

The result is P'unk Burger, nestled between East Passyunk Avenue's two restaurant clusters on the 1800 block—just down the street from Marra's and Stogie Joe's and just up from Le

The former Engine Company 46 firehouse, later steakhouse, today

The intricate brickwork, the building’s long history, and its signature tower that could hide archers in its turret, like Daryl Dixon in a zombie apocalypse, all combine to make the former Engine Company 46 firehouse, at 1401 S. Water St. in Pennsport, one of the most recognizable buildings in South Philadelphia.

Build in 1894, Engine 46 was designed by John T. Windrim in the Flemish Revival style complete with a castle-like tower or turret that a person could stand on top of and see for miles around—at least in 1894.

The firehouse has survived virtually unaltered since it was built, as this 1896 photograph shows; only the garage door has been significantly altered

Now, in 2014,

The last of the Mummers Fancy Division clubs turns to crowdfunding for its survival; for its 30th birthday, the Commuter Tunnel gets a splendid present — a comprehensive history of the planning and construction of the country's first Big Dig; and speaking of trains, that proposed super-duper-high-speed tunnel under Center City is still a live item; and a Gen-Xer makes the case that cities should be turning to members of her generation, not Millennials, for their salvation:

We've been following the progress of Constitution Court, the 12-unit gated townhome community now under construction at 3rd and Reed streets in Pennsport, since the Episcopal church it replaces was demolished. So far, though, all the photos we've shown you are from the outside. Today, we take you inside the first finished townhome.

And it's a beauty: Large and bright thanks to the high ceilings and huge windows that flood each room with natural light. Hardwood floors finished on site and recessed lighting throughout add more elements of style, and dual-zone climate control takes care of the elements of comfort.

Living Room

Our tour begins on the first floor, where a family room/sitting area and coat closet are just inside fhe front door. Beyond
