Sounds and Senses, with Suzanne Erb

Sounds and Senses, with Suzanne Erb

July 28, 2021

In this episode of Sounds of the Rail Park, elevate your senses on a walk through Phase One with Suzanne Erb. Listen to Suzanne and Friends of the Rail Park Executive Director, Rebecca Cordes Chan, as they chat about the sounds, scents, and textures of the Rail Park as they travel through the space together. 

Suzanne Erb is a Center City, Philadelphia resident with a career dedicated to diversity inclusion. From the time she left the Overbrook School for the Blind at the end of her freshman year in 1971, and entered her local high school as the first totally blind student, she has demonstrated her belief that inclusion not only brings diversity of values and ideas to organizations, but it can also be easily accomplished with some forethought and planning. In her role as an Accessibility Advisor, she shows, by example and knowledge sharing, how you can design your meetings and conferences to be universally inclusive.

As an advocate, she sits on boards and commissions including the Tenants Union Representative Network, where she holds the office of Secretary, Disability Rights Pennsylvania, where she also serves as Secretary, and the City of Philadelphia’s Mayor’s Commission on People with disabilities. She also serves as a member of various advisory boards, including the Business Advisory Council for the Philadelphia Job Corps, and chairs the Philadelphia Citizens Advisory Council of the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.

She is also knowledgeable about assistive technology for people who are blind, which she uses both personally and professionally, and has helped people to make informed decisions regarding the purchase of assistive technology for their personal use.

In her spare time, Ms. Erb is a professional musician, as an organist and choir director for 25 years. She enjoys visiting Philadelphia’s parks and green spaces.

Mindfulness in Practice, with Nalaverse

Mindfulness in Practice, with Nalaverse

June 3, 2021

In this episode of Sounds of the Rail Park we're joined by Nalaverse, a Black centered, women led, virtual mental wellness platform, to discuss mindfulness and the value of access to nature and outdoor space for health and wellbeing.

It's no secret that in a big city like Philadelphia, it can be difficult to find a place for exercise or mindfulness away from the busy streets. Phase One of the Rail Park sits between Chinatown North and Callowhill, offering a green space for everyone in an area with very limited access to parks, providing a place for us to move around, connect with nature and breathe in the open air.

Sounds of the Park

Sounds of the Park

December 7, 2020

Ten years ago, a small group of community members looked at the rusty rails that run through their neighborhoods and saw potential. Potential for a usable, beautiful public space. When completed, the Rail Park will connect more than ten neighborhoods with three miles of continuous green space. A space for everyone: young and old, athlete and artist, neighbors and visitors alike. Friends of the Rail Park presents ‘Sounds of the Park’, an audio guide to the sights, sounds, and spaces of the Rail Park.

Sonidos del Parque (Sounds of the Park)

Sonidos del Parque (Sounds of the Park)

December 7, 2020

Hace 10 años, un pequeño grupo de la comunidad observó los rieles oxidados que atraviesan sus vecindarios y vio su potencial: la posibilidad de un espacio público útil y hermoso. Cuando esté completo, el Parque Ferroviario conectará más de diez vecindarios con 3 millas de espacio verde continuo. Será un lugar para jóvenes y adultos, deportistas y artistas, vecinos y visitantes, para todos por igual.

Los Amigos del Parque Ferroviario presentan Sonidos del Parque, una audio guía de las vistas, sonidos y espacios del Parque Ferroviario.
