Let the sun shine on Philly (Photo Gallery)

 02/08/2017 - 17:35

We at ALDIA News bring to you the places in Philadelphia you may have heard of but you may not know of. There are many stories within the city. We do our part to bring them into the light.

With this rare sunny and warm day, you would think it was the middle of summer instead of the second week of February. ALDIA News takes a trip to El Bloque de Oro (The Golden Block) and near Front & Allegheny avenue to see how people are using their time in this type of weather.

We then go to Temple University Main Campus to see how students and staff are taking advantage of the day.
