Rittenhouse Square is a pearl in central Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Square is bounded by Walnut Street to the north, 18th Street to the east, South Rittenhouse Street to the south, and West Rittenhouse Street to the west in southwestern corner of Philadelphia’s Center City 그림 1 Rittenhouse square area map

The most inviting of William Penn's original five public squares, Rittenhouse Square brings together all of Center City Philadelphia's southwest quadrant, a vibrant neighborhood of shops, offices, homes, schools, hotels, and cultural institutions. This mixture of uses and the surrounding buildings provides a constant source of people who use the square throughout the day and evening.

This ever-present activity and the reasons for it led Jane Jacobs, the famous urbanist and author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, to call Rittenhouse Square "the perfect neighborhood." History

In 1682, when William Penn asked his surveyor to draw up a city plan, it included five “squares” or open spaces that reflected the statesman’s desire for a “green country town.” There was one in the center and others at each corner of the growing town.

Rittenhouse Square was originally called Southwest Square due to its location in that part of the city. Like the other squares, it often provided a place for livestock to roam though it was never used as a burial ground, which was the case with the other squares.

In 1816, the residents of this popular square asked that it be enclosed by a fence and raised funds to do so. In the next several decades, trees and walkways were added as were the first houses facing the square. The name of Southwest Square was changed in 1825 to honor David Rittenhouse, a Philadelphia astronomer and instrument maker.

By 1850, Rittenhouse Square was indeed the most fashionable place to live in Philadelphia, and by the turn of the century, it was known to boast a variety of colorful Victorian...

Real World Radical Formulas (title required on first line)
Though radicals seem complicated at first glance, the concept simply extends what is
already known about exponents and the order of operations. Additionally, manipulating formulas
that include radicals is no different than those without, providing appropriate rules are followed.
These rules include accurately finding the cube and square root for numbers and understanding
the application of the solution in the real world.
It is stated in #103 on page 605 (Dugopolski, 2012) that the capsize screening value C
should be less than 2 if a boat is to be considered safe for ocean sailing. The formula is given as
C = 4d-1/3b where d is the displacement in pounds and b is the beam width in feet. The exponent
of -1/3 means that the cube root of d will be taken and then the reciprocal of that number will be
used in the multiplication.
a) For the first example, a 1963 Cascade 29 sailboat’s capsize screening value will be
calculated. The boat has a beam of 8 ft 2 in. and a displacement of 8500 lbs. The inches value
will be converted into a decimal by division (2/12)....

...Compare and Contrast: Rhombus, Rectangle, and Square
In this essay I will be explaining the differences between a rhombus, rectangle, and a square. Next, I will be explaining each quadrilateral and also using the definitions that go along with each quadrilateral. Then, I will be describing how the three quadrilaterals have the same and different characteristics.
In a rhombus, opposite sides congruent, opposite angles congruent, consecutive angles supplementary and the diagonals bisect each other. In a rectangle, all angles are congruent and the diagonals are congruent. In a square, all angles are right angles the sum of the interior angles of a square will always be 360 degrees. A square is a rectangle, while a rectangle is not a square. A square is under the category of quadrilaterals along with the rectangle, trapezoid, kite, and rhombus.
First of all, a rhombus is a parallelogram with four congruent sides. . In the rhombus corollary it says that a quadrilateral is a rhombus if and only if it has four congruent sides. Next, a rectangle is a parallelogram with four congruent angles. In the rectangle corollary it says that a rectangle is a rhombus if and only if it has four congruent sides. Lastly, a square is a parallelogram with four congruent sides and angles. In the square corollary it says that a quadrilateral is a square if...

Times Square
Standing on the worn, gum-spotted pavement at the corner of 42nd street and Broadway Avenue, brightest of lights illuminated the crowd of tourists snapping pictures with their digital cameras. Billboards stacked one on top of another what seemed like for forever. All ages and races lowered their cameras to reveal their awe-struck faces. Lights were lit as bright as day even at 11 o'clock at night. As I realized that I was standing in a jungle of tourists who hailed from all reaches of the world. I cringed at the thought of this five block radius of pure madness. Tourists often think of the city that never sleeps and ask, "How could someone live in this crazy city?" Don't get me wrong, everyone should witness Times Square, but once!
Hundreds of horns blare in my ears, streams of cabs scurry everywhere, and an array of conversations pollute the air. Plugging my ears forcefully, I can hear plenty of different languages such as Polish, Chinese, Arabic, and German. Pushing and shoving, the tourists squeeze through like zombies. Some stopped every other step to take pictures, blinding me with the flashes. As the different languages fly through the air, I looked up at blinding flashing billboards. Coca-Cola, Kodak, Wicked, McDonald's, and Designer Jeans illuminate the square in a blinding lay out of advertisements. It may be breathtaking to some, but for me it's a...

Magic squares have intrigued people for thousands of years and in ancient times they were thought to be connected with the supernatural and hence, magical. Today, magic squares are considered magical because there are so many relationships between the sums of the numbers in the squares. So, what is a magic square? A magic square is an arrangement of the numbers from 1 to n2 in an n x n matrix, with each number occurring exactly once, and such that the sum of the entries of any row, any column, or any main diagonal is the same (Alejandre), called the magic constant or sum. The magic sum can be found using the formula (n(n2 + 1))/2 for any n x n matrix. There are many different variations of magic squares, of which, some have more ways of finding the magic sum in the square and others use geometric shapes or number words.
The earliest known magic square was found in a Chinese book, Yih King, in which the legend of “Lo Shu” is told. This magic square is a 3 x 3 matrix, with numbers 1-9, and the magic sum is 15. “The legend of “Lo Shu” or “scroll of the river Lo” tells the story of a huge flood that destroyed crops and land. The people offered a sacrifice to the river god to calm his anger. Every time the river flooded, there emerged a turtle that would walk around the sacrifice. It wasn’t until a child noticed a unique pattern on the turtle’s...

...Genius of the European Town Square
by
Suzanne H. Crowhurst Lennard
Henry L. Lennard
(Excerpt)
One of the greatest inventions of the European city, indeed one could not conceive of most European cities without it, is the central town square or market place. This was a uniquely European invention, intimately connected to the development of democratic and representational self-government…
Whether called agora, forum, piazza, plaza, Platz, platea, piata, námesti, rynek, trg or market place the main square has been a distinguishing characteristic of European cities in one form or another for over two thousand years. During the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth centuries hundreds of market squares were created as the center of new European cities from Spain to Sweden and from Belgium to Hungary. The medieval market place fostered the development of community, culture and democracy…
What is unique about the traditional European square?
The traditional European town square is an urban space surrounded by an almost continuous wall of buildings, with small entrances and exits leading in and out, creating the feeling of an outdoor salon or ballroom. Most of the surrounding buildings are what we now call mixed-use shop/houses. They are complemented by important civic and religious edifices that are frequently, though not always, part of the contiguous urban fabric of the...
