Philadelphia Magic Gardens
Having visitors from out of town always gives us opportunity to play tourist in our own city. We took our friends to The Philadelphia Magic Gardens, and it is just that – magical.
This labyrinth of colorful mosaicked walls and passageways is the vision of Isaiah Zagar, who’s art can be seen gracing the wall of buildings around the city. I’ve always visited during the summer season, however, the dusk light brought particular delight as the strands of lights reflected on the walls in unexpected ways. The lot is so packed with his handmade tiles, found objects and donated pieces, that you can see something new every time you go.
If you’re planning a visit, definitely put this place on your itinerary.
