Donate $200Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City

Written by Hidden City Daily co-founders Nathaniel Popkin and Pete Woodall, and photographed by one of America’s most lauded architectural photographers, Joseph E.B. Elliott, Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City is a portrait of one of America’s greatest and yet least understood cities. Rather than a nostalgic elegy to loss and urban decline, the book marks Philly’s vivid layers and living ruins. Hardcover, 200 pg. Temple University Press, 2017.
