Across the street from Fresh Fields is the Philadelphia Human Services
building. It backs up on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, "a wide, tree-lined
thoroughfare studded with palace-like Neo-Classical structures, flags,
statues, and ornamental fountains ... designed to imitate Paris's Avenue
des Champs-Elysees" (ACCESS Philadelphia, 1996).
Behind the Philadelphia Human Services building is a sculpture which
reflects it's motto, "Our Children Are The Future", and which
is appropriate to the thoroughfare.
On an autumn day, before the snows set in, at least one person calls
this statue home.
