A Taste of PhilaPlace
With a small handful of important partner institutions and funders, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania (HSP) is developing PhilaPlace: A Neighborhood History And Culture Project.
What is PhilaPlace? An online resource chronicling the history, culture, and architecture of two of Philadelphia’s oldest immigrant and African American neighborhoods: South Philadelphia and Northern Liberties/Kensington.
Current and past residents will add historical documents, images, and voice recordings, deepening the documentation of this “city of neighborhoods.”
PhilaPlace it is expected to launch in fall 2008. Get a taste of it here with this report by Elisabeth Fiedler recently aired on WHYY’s 91FM.
