Just over a year ago, we launched the Hidden City Daily. We wanted to provide more insight into our changing city and inspire deeper exploration of our neighborhoods and places.

The Hidden City Daily has earned a proud place at the heart of the conversation about Philadelphia’s future. 

With our initial funding match from the Knight Arts Challenge successfully completed and well-invested in our success to date, we need your support to keep the conversation going.

Today, we launch a crowd funding campaign through the website IndieGoGo. Our must-get goal is $15,000, but we hope to raise up to a quarter of the Daily’s annual budget of $100,000.

Here’s what one reader said recently about the Hidden City Daily:

HC brings to our attention a most extraordinary layer of Philadelphia’s built environment–forming a network of awareness for this very vulnerable fabric…thank you..don’t ever quit.

We at Hidden City take this challenge seriously–and we believe the depth of our coverage is making a difference. Now, we need you to help us keep going.

As a reward for your support, we’re offering a great number of wonderful perks. Among these delights: a special tour of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts with Frank Furness expert Michael Lewis, a personal tour of Center City’s small streets with city planning and commerce director Alan Greenberger, a night of bowling and beer for you and friends at a 117 year old restored bowling alley, a pack of ten original Philly postcards by editor Peter Woodall, limited edition print of the baroque West Philadelphia Title and Trust Building by Hidden City contributor Ben Leech, signed copy of The Possible City: Exercises in Dreaming Philadelphia by editor Nathaniel Popkin, and Pennsylvania Horticultural Society membership and tickets to the 2013 Flower Show.

Once you check out the campaign, please spread the word through your personal and professional contacts and social media.
