The Philly Skinny screen shot

Brad Maule’s Skinny–the comprehensive list of new real estate development projects across the city–drew me and thousands of other readers to the old Philly Skyline. When Brad left for Portland, he left an enormous void. One part of that void, even despite the bust that killed off so many projects, was the Skinny. Taking a prompt from Hidden City contributor GroJLart, author of PhilaPhilia, another Hidden City contributor, the architect Michael Burlando, took up the challenge. He posted the new Skinny’s debut last week. Click to the new Skinny HERE.

Congrats to Michael, cheers to Groj, and thank you, B-Love, you started it all.
