In With The Old 2021

The Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance is pleased to present our 8th annual In With The Old event on October 21, 2021 at the stunning Corn Exchange National Bank, now the headquarters of Linode. After an engaging virtual event last year, we are thrilled to be back in person. The adaptive reuse of the Corn Exchange National Bank into Linode’s HQ, led by Ballinger, has highlighted the ornate detailing, delicately infilled with glazing to create functional space for an office. Two extant vaults have been preserved, as well as teller’s offices and basement tunnels.

YFPA looks forward to you joining us for this special return to In With The Old. As required by the City of Philadelphia, proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required upon entrance and masks will be encouraged while not eating or drinking.

We can’t wait to see you!

YFPA launched the #ISeeALegacy campaign in 2018 to raise awareness of the city’s incredible stock of legacy businesses as part of our ongoing effort to recognize, preserve, and celebrate the local landmarks that help define Philadelphia as a “city of neighborhoods.”  YFPA continues to research, document, and highlight businesses contributing to what will become Philadelphia’s first ever Legacy Businesses database. A Legacy Business is one that has operated for 30 or more years and has contributed to the history and/or the identity of a particular neighborhood or community.
