A New Museum on the Mall…Independence Mall

If you think the National Mall in Washington, D.C. is getting cluttered and needs a major makeover, spend some time at Independence Mall in Philadelphia. It was the product of urban bulldozing in the 1950s, and it still looks it. But one building can make a big difference, which is why I reviewed the newest addition to the Philadelphia cultural scene, the National Museum of Jewish American History. It’s well worth a visit.
