Casino gambling has arrived in Philadelphia, and the Sugarhouse is now one of 5 casinos on an 80 mile corridor along I-95 between Bensalem and Perryville, MD (where a slots parlor opened last week). But Sugarhouse is an urban casino that will draw many of its patrons from a city where 1/3 of the households do not have access to a car.
So it may have been a surprise to the Casino (along with some near-sighted transportation planners) that some employees and gamblers would arrive by bike. Well maybe not totally - a schoolyard bike rack is located on the north side entrance to the Casino, next to a "don't leave a child in your car" sign.
On the river side of the Casino is a gem of a demonstration riverfront walk, which may serve as a model for the rest of the Central Delaware Riverfront. The promenade consists of a paved path segregated by landscaping from a gravel walking trail and will eventually be part of the Delaware River Waterfront Greenway.
