    The atmosphere of Old City is not like it was when I fell in love with the area in 1997

    Well lookie here:

    For years, rumors have floated around Old City that a high-end food market might be coming to our neighborhood. So many developers have made this promise that it became a running joke in the community. Well, it seems that rumor may finally be moving toward reality. Trust Market is being planned to open the beautiful Trust building on the N.E. corner of 3rd and Arch Sts.

    F.U.E.L. was never a real gallery in the traditional sense.


    IIRC, It was "run" by a daughter of OC's own infamous one-man Israeli king-of-something-or-other. She was young and it was something to do till the time was right for daddy to develop the property properly. It was mostly rented out for events/art shows/charities/ for the young want-to-be-luxurious crowd.



    I had a friend who volunteered for there when it was the old Seamen's center, so every now and then I'd go in and play pool with her in there. Truly crazy how the girl rehabbed the inside (the outside is pretty much indestructible) to the heights of opulence for a building with no real purpose (daddy's money you know). Daddy was just sittin on it till something would come along- I always thought it would make a great apple store. (and it would have except OC is not a foot-traffic through-way so that was never going to happen).

    hmmmmm... interesting. You seem to be bashing an Old City business, while trolling anyone who makes similar assertions about other old city businesses.

    BTW- as usual, you're wrong. It was the son of 'so and so' who controls, owns, and manages the building, along with the exhibits and events. The coordinator of the exhibits was a guy.

    It might not have been a son or daughter, but someone else on the family ladder. I remember the article in one of the city papers profiling a girl running the show when it first opened. Maybe someone else was managing the business end- I can't remember. Either way, same point.


    You obviously don't understand the meaning of "bash", because nowhere did I bash the business - saying it was not a real art gallery was not bashing, just correcting a misperception that it was an art gallery). In fact i gave them praise for what they did with the inside.

    YOU, pointing a finger at someone trolling ? HAHAHA........

    HAHAHAHHAHA!!!

    Marguerite McDonald
    Marguerite McDonald is a native to the Philadelphia area and holds a degree in Public and Private Sector Organization from Brown University. While at Brown Marguerite was awarded the Panda Cup in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the Women’s Ice Hockey team, and the Chelsea MacMillan award for pride and perseverance. This active, champion’s spirit is evident throughout Marguerite’s life, from her various athletic achievements to her work as Public Relations Freelancer for the “Ready, Set, Vote” project in her native Philadelphia. It is this enthusiasm and hands-on mentality that exemplifies Marguerite’s approach and guiding ethos as co-founder of The F.U.E.L. Collection.

    Jennifer Yaron
    With experience as both an artist and educator, as well as a lifelong passion for art and culture, FUEL seems a natural outgrowth from the trajectory of Jennifer Yaron’s life. A native to Philadelphia, Yaron has a history of appreciation for and participation in the city’s long-standing and vibrant arts community. Her personal investment in the city’s culture and sophistication combined with her own experiences as a creator of art contribute to a unique perspective and outlook as co-founder of FUEL. Dynamic, effervescent, and original: these are qualities that have been central to Jennifer Yaron’s passion in life and art, and qualities that remain evident in her work with The F.U.E.L. Collection.

    I'm sure you also think Rendell is still mayor of the city since that's the last time you were relevant at anything, but to pull up an outdated website and padded resume from 2007 doesn't quite tell the story.

    Jason Yaron owns, owned, manages and managed all aspects of the place with a fine tooth comb. He also put a guy named Christopher in charge of the art shows.

    I'm not sure about official positions but when it first opened Jennifer and Marguerite (who were childhood friends) definitely seemed to be running the day to day operations. I'm a friend of a friend who occasionally hung out there, the way it was always explained to me was that Jen's family owned it, and the girls ran it...not that any of this really matters.

    LINIOT is full of fluff and furry. I'm learning why so many here think he's cute.

    You don't even understand, despite all the hints I've given you on a silver bladder, that I've been here since Goode.

    Don't you even understand that was the point I was making when i said "daddy's girl" ?

    You better hope ole Hal doesn't really sue your a$$ because all indications are that he will outwit you.

    You don't seem to understand that I never once inquired who you were or what schlepp position you perform for some illusionary old city glory. Since I don't care, any hints would be best left at Sonny's steaks in the business card fishbowl for you weekly chance at a free lunch, lil' champ.
