This is our 13th day of publishing the Hidden City Daily.

We have received many comments and lots of encouragement so far, but we need more.

Our group of contributors is terrific. We’re doing this because we love our great city of Philadelphia, and share a passion for exploration, architecture, history, art and people.  But we need more.

We need thoughtful and opinionated folks to send us 500 word editorials and reviews for our Soapbox section. We need careful observers with story ideas to send us pitches.  We need photographers with fresh eyes and a dollop of derring-do. And we need folks to send in tips when they see changes in the cityscape.   See our guidelines HERE.

Philadelphia is a wonderfully baroque place that does not give up its secrets easily. Help us bring this hidden city to light.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Nathaniel Popkin & Peter Woodall, Co-editors
