Illadelph Halflife

Partly of urb ex interest, but mostly concerned with historical documentation, the wordpress blog Ruins/NFR is devoted to "a continuing series in the social history of Philadelphia’s built environment, a study of the forces that cause landscapes and structures to come into and pass out of existence." Sifting through accounts of the city's past as well as charting its contemporary development, the site appears to be the work of a sole proprietor. Considering Philly's size and complexity, I can't help but wonder how the site would shape up if it were the work of multiple contributors.

In other Philly-related news, it appears that Schoolly D has been writing a weekly column for Philebrity these past several months.
