And now the latest from our sister site Curbed Philly, covering everything you need to know about the city's neighborhoods and real estate...
STARCHITECTURE—Isn't it weird that the amazing Rafael Viñoly estate in Fort Washington is still on the market? Maybe that's because it costs $30,000,000. That's $30 million. It wasn't a typo.
CURBED COMPARISONS—We took half a million bucks and went to five different neighborhoods to see what we could buy. Sneak preview? You get more bang for your buck in Elkins Park.
KENSINGTON—The Thomas Buck Hosiery Co. warehouse burnt down, and two firefighters died. Did it have to happen? Not according to many neighborhood and blogger soothsayers, who saw the whole thing coming.
WEST PHILLY—This house in Cedar Park sold in less than a day. No kidding.
NORTH BROAD—Bart Blatstein has announced he wants to build a casino out of the old Inquirer/Daily News building; Caryn Kunkle wants to put an art museum inside the Divine Lorraine; Rodeph Shalom gets a gallery; and imaginary Inky scribes are praying.
