Welcome to the (new) Philly Skinny
I put this site together in response to GroJLart's challenge that it needed to be done. Though Philly's had a rough couple of years, you can't deny that development in the city has roared back over the last few months, and there is more happening now than there has been for years.
Brad Maule's original skinny did a great job of chronicling the ups and down of the last great building boom in Philadelphia. I'm trying to keep the same basic, utilitarian approach, but I'd love for the site to be more crowd-sourced, both to get more information in one place, and to keep the information up-to-date without too much effort on the part of any one individual. So, if you have a few minutes, submit a project using the tab above, or click on "The Skinny" to see where we're at. Rest assured that it will be quirky and odd at first, but hopefully it will come together with a little time.
If you've got ideas for how to improve things, or better yet, you'd like to help, let me know.
