Who Will Fix Philadelphia Gayborhood’s Faded Crosswalks?

The rainbow crosswalks at 13th and Locust Streets were once a gleaming landmark for the Gayborhood. That was 2015, when Instagram-happy visitors would traipse across the newly painted strip for photo after photo.

Now the crosswalks look, well, less than cheerful. Years of construction and use have faded them considerably.

But there is a solution: thermoplastic, a material much more durable than the paint used three years ago. The only problem? Figuring out who, if anyone, will pay for the fix.
