JIMMY BINNS has giant nutcrackers.
The white-collar lawyer and philanthropist has been known to crack a few nuts in his day - in and out of court - so the two holiday nutcrackers, which stand about 5 feet tall, don't seem so out of place in the ornately decorated living room of his four-story South Philly home.
The walls are covered in late-20th-century Binns - photographic portraits of Binns, framed magazine covers of Binns, courtroom sketches of Binns, paintings and wood etchings of Binns. The hallways are lined with artwork celebrating his storied life. But the most important pieces are the yellow-and-brown finger paintings created by his grandchildren that are found on the refrigerator.
