I am doing a project for my History on the Web class at West Chester University and am required to make edits to the Rittenhouse Square article in the near future. My plan is to add a "history" section to the article. I will take history from the lead section as well as other historical information I have found. I will also make some other adjustments to create balance within the article. These edits include moving some information from the lead section to the Arts and Culture section as well as changing the "Incidents" heading to "Happenings" will another happening that occurred on January 17, 2017. I may also add a couple more images to the "Gallery" section.--Ml839778 (talk) 19:52, 25 April 2017 (UTC)ml839778
The lead section implies that the subject of the article is the square/park itself, but the rest of the article covers the whole neighborhood as well. The lead should be expanded to explain the distinction between the two and clarify the scope of the article. --diff (talk) 02:41, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
I would have thought it obvious to anyone with knowledge of large cities that "a park" is a named recreational (or business) area that has many trees (except for Clark Park or business parks), "a square" is a named demarcated area immediately surrounding a street intersection, and a neighborhood is a demarcated named area of similar building type, usually residences. The distinction need not be explained, especially in the lead, which is a short summary of the article. David Spector (talk) 20:10, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
