On 1,200 acres of Philadelphia waterfront, where some of the Navy's most historic ships were built, a fleet of another sort will soon make what Anthony Bucci hopes will be a high-impact entrance. And not just because of the noise coming from the tailpipes. RevZilla.com L.L.C., an online motorcycle-gear retailer created five years ago by three friends wanting to indulge their proficiency with technology and love of bikes, will move to Philadelphia Navy Yard in February. It will leave its 35,000-square-foot, low-profile headquarters in an old South Philadelphia toy factory on Jackson Street and bring something novel to the business campus redevelopment site along the Delaware: shopping.

WITHOUT hesitation, former Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Roger Ulshafer said that if he had to describe the emergency management of the Kensington warehouse blaze that claimed the lives of two firefighters in April, it would be "disgraceful. " Ulshafer made the statement during a City Council committee hearing Thursday to determine if proper safety controls were in place when a five-alarm fire destroyed the Thomas W. Buck Hosiery building. Lt. Robert Neary and firefighter Daniel Sweeney, of Ladder 10, died after a wall on a nearby building fell on them.

A year after suspicious blazes tore through the vacant hulks of three former industrial complexes in Camden, spreading fear that a serial arsonist was at large and prompting federal investigators to descend on the city, the views of the sites anger or please neighbors, depending on where they are located. Charred wood and other debris remain piled up steps from Nina Thomas' home near the former Howland Croft, Sons & Co. garment factory in the Waterfront South section, which went up in flames on June 11 last year.
