Philly’s the city of neighborhoods, right? So consider this story your resource for news about and in Philly’s many neighborhoods. That could mean a development story from a specific neighborhood, or Billy Penn’s postcard series about neighborhoods you might not know much about. And now you can buy neighborhood swag — everything from hoodies to phone covers, magnets and more to rep your favorite spot in the city.
It’s one of Philly’s most diverse areas but badly needs young people.
Neighbors wonder why they get saturated, while other areas don’t: “Spread the wealth.”
Escalation clauses, all-cash offers and other new features from buys in suddenly hot ‘hoods: “Twenty-four hours in this market is an eternity.”
A pickup truck just for organic waste; also, behavioral experiments.
Those blue bins are elusive.
Neighbors weren’t interested in a plan with even fewer spots.
