Philly Streets Open Up for Day]]> Fri, 23 Sep 2016 08:02:42 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/206*120/Open+Street+Empty+Philadelphia+Street+Empty.JPG

Have you ever wanted to explore miles of Philadelphia without worrying about cars getting in your way?

Thanks to Philly Free Streets the city will be "temporarily closing Philly streets to vehicles, inviting people to walk, bike and play."

Here’s the deal. On Saturday, about 10 miles of major Philadelphia thoroughfares will be shut down from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The routes run from South and Front streets to the South Street Bridge up the Schuylkill River Trail to Martin Luther King Drive to West Fairmount Park area of the Please Touch Museum. Motorists will be able to intermittently cross South Street at 4th, 7th, 8th, 11th, Broad, 19th, 20th, 22nd and 23rd streets, said Philadelphia Police.

The closed routes will host free, family-friendly fitness activities and pop-up educational programming. The Schuylkill River Trail makes up a permanent non-vehicle portion of the route.

The car-free paths move through more than one dozen city neighborhoods.

Events include:

9 a.m. -- Mile-long power walk led by Mayor Jim Kenney. Starting point is 2nd and South.

9 a.m. -- Group Run with November Project. Meet at the Art Museum steps for a 2-mile run to the Philly Free Streets community programs in West Fairmount Park.

9 a.m. -- High-energy Strenth, Conditioning and Cardio Boot Camp. This is a 45-minute interactive, high-energy workout. Meet on MLK Drive just south of Strawberry Mansion Bridge.

10:30 a.m. -- Join the stroll and roll to the Rec Fest, Carousel House Recreation Center, 4300 Avenue of the Republic.

11 a.m. -- Group Bike Ride with Council Curtis Jones, Jr., Meet at the Falls Bridge and ride up to the Philly Free Streets community programs in West Fairmount Park (Sweet Briar Field).

11:30 a.m. -- Group Bike Ride. Meet the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia at Front & South for a group ride along the entire Philly Free Streets route -- all the way to West Fairmount Park and back.

Noon -- Celebrity Stroll with Patti Jackson of WDAS Radio. Stroll with Jackson, a stroke survivor, from the Art Museum steps.

The car-free closure was spurred on by Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia last September. Whole sections of Center City were car free because of security closures for the multi-day visit.

Most people do not associate football with magic, but in Philadelphia it is hard to do anything but.

If you haven’t been following this season of America’s Got Talent, you may not know Jon Dorenbos, Eagles’ long-snapper, is also a magician.

After judge Ne-Yo used his golden buzzer on July 12 to send the two-time pro-bowler straight to the live shows, Dorenbos upped the stakes every time he competed during this season of AGT.

Dorenbos began his run with card tricks of a higher caliber than “Is this your card?” The long-snapper most recently advanced to the finals after he performed a trick that involved footballs, a map and some change.

He balanced his football schedule and TV schedule as he flew back and forth to compete on and off the field. 

After the Eagles win Sunday over the Cleveland Browns, Dorenbos jetted to Los Angeles to prepare for his final act.

NBC10 reporter Jacqueline London also flew out to LA in order to talk with the magic man before he competes.

Watch Dorenbos compete live on the America’s Got Talent Finale at 8 p.m. Tuesday on NBC10. After the competition, make sure to cast your vote.

Fifty years ago, millions of Americans were glued to their TV sets for what would be a transformative glimpse into the future: The original “Star Trek” series debuted on NBC Sept. 8, 1966. In honor of the show, which led to six more series and 13 movies, the Smithsonian is celebrating science fiction becoming science fact.

"Space, the final frontier," and “the Enterprise” are two of the best known elements of our television history. Now they're attracting crowds at the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum.

In 1966, if you wanted to have a spaceship in your TV show or movie, you had to physically build one and film it. The 11-foot long studio model of the USS Enterprise is the centerpiece of the Smithsonian's three-day celebration of the original series. The museum got the model in 1974, five years after NBC canceled the show. For a new permanent exhibit, it's been refurbished and rewired.

"I think it's an important part of connecting the popular culture enthusiasm around space flight to the actual artifacts of space flight," Smithsonian space history custodian Margaret Weitekamp said.

The museum is screening the first episode, "The Man Trap," Thursday for a capacity crowd with a discussion to follow.

Friday night will feature a Smithsonian documentary called "Building Star Trek" and another film by the son the late Leonard Nimoy called "For the Love of Spock."

Despite the jokes non-Trekkies make about the TV franchise, “Star Trek” made an undeniable mark on many parts of our history.

"’Star Trek’ is an optimistic view of the future," local attorney Charles Hildebrandt said.

He is part of a group working to build the Museum of Science Fiction in the D.C. area. 

Scenes, like an interracial kiss in 1968, were “Star Trek's” bold and covert way of helping Americans face their demons, Hildebrandt said.

"Allowed them to talk about and discuss and confront the Vietnam War, racism, sexism, all these issues that most other entertainment can't even discuss," he said.

"Nichelle Nichols, who is the African-American actress who played Lt. Uhura in the original series, was actually recruited by NASA to recruit astronaut candidates when they wanted more women, more African-Americans, more Asian-Americans," Weitekamp said.

“Star Trek” also inspired things we now see in the real world. What Capt. Kirk called a communicator then, Motorola called the first flip phone in 1996 and revolutionized how we communicate.

"There are really a lot of things from automatic doors that you walk through at the grocery store to the iPad that you can look up your information on that really have some connections to ‘Star Trek,’" Weitekamp said.

Syfy, an NBC Universal channel, is airing three “Star Trek” movies Thursday evening.
