Correction: The original version misstated the date Gallery II opened. It was in October 1983. Market East Station (now Jefferson Station) opened in 1984. THE NEWS STAND. Toys "R"Us. Easy Pickins. Taco Bell. One by one, stores and eateries have been closing at the Gallery in recent weeks as the clock ticks down for a major renovation of the nearly 40-year-old Center City mall that stretches along Market Street from 8th to 11th. At the FYE entertainment-media store, signs tell customers to visit the store's Broad and Chestnut location.

A lunchroom fight between two boys at West Philadelphia High School turned deadly later when one fatally stabbed the other a few blocks from the school, police said. The boys, ages 14 and 16, had an altercation at lunch that required them to be separated, but they returned to class without incident, said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives. About 3:20 p.m., the 14-year-old was riding his bicycle in the 4600 block of Market Street with a brother and another student from the high school when the 16-year-old approached and stabbed the younger boy in the chest, Walker said.

WHILE SOME thought that having DJs along the Broad Street Mummers Parade route on New Year's Day to be sacrilegious and the equivalent of putting Swiss on a cheesesteak, or sitting in Jerry Jones' luxury box during a Cowboys vs. Eagles game, most would agree that the parade lulls and backups were up there with the Watch Paint Dry Olympics. I volunteered to be the disc jockey at the City Hall grandstands,hoping to spin some tunes and get the crowd in a good mood before and during the parade.

Can the Schuylkill ever play a role like the Chicago River or Paris' Seine - a source of beauty and vitality that unites riverside neighborhoods like Center City and University City rather than dividing them? It's a decades-old dream, but key pieces are finally falling into place, according to civic leaders and developers who joined a panel discussion Tuesday at the Union League sponsored by the Central Philadelphia Development Corp. On both sides of the river, new projects such as Brandywine Realty Trust's 47-story FMC Tower at 30th and Walnut Streets and PMC Property Group's million-square-foot complex planned at 2400 Market St. are paying closer attention than their predecessors to the streetscape and river.

A Grinch - or Grinches - evidently sabotaged the annual Delaware River "Santa Run," in which gifts are distributed to visiting seamen, some from thousands of miles away. After discovering that the tugboat   Jupiter   had an inoperative propeller, the Seamen's Church Institute and the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild canceled the event Saturday. The Seamen's staff had planned to deliver ditty bags to seafarers from many nations aboard ships docked on the Delaware River.

Center City's grimy alleys are the equivalent of Philadelphia's attic, stuffed with forgotten architectural treasures. And there may be no richer trove than the stretch that runs behind the former Lits Bros. department store. There's now a parking garage at one end and a prison at the other, but with your eyes half-closed, the alley almost suggests a canal in Venice, canopied by its own moody Bridge of Sighs. Designed in 1912 by Castor & Stearns, the Renaissance-style arch is tightly notched into the narrow opening between Lits' back wall and Arch Street's Cast Iron building, connecting their second and third floors.

THERE WAS PLENTY of rocking around the City Hall Christmas tree last night. For about two hours, a group of protesters railing against grand-jury acquittals of cops in the deaths of two men in Missouri and New York were locked in a sonic battle with choirs, dancers and other performers at a tree-lighting ceremony in the City Hall courtyard. "We're out here protesting against the killing of Mike Brown, Eric Garner and all the other black men who are killed in our streets," Nayo Jones, a member of Black Lives Matter and the organizer of the protest, said at the base of the 35-foot Norway spruce.
