Per the Inquirer, Philly missed out on nearly $13 million in real estate transfer taxes in the past year

Unlike the Two Liberty and Wanamaker transactions, which involved transfers of corporate ownership, the Dec. 30 sale of Blatstein’s 92,500-square-foot Shops at Schmidts retail complex at Second Street and Girard Avenue was recorded as a property sale.

    Philly misses full bounty of Shops at Schmidts sale, as transfer-tax shortfalls persist
    Sales of the offices at Two Liberty Place and of the Wanamaker Building also did not bring to Philadelphia and Pennsylvania the full transfer-tax proceeds. New rules that go into effect July 1 aim to close loopholes frequently employed - legally - in large commercial real estate transactions.

The Rise of Neighborhood Noir

900 North Front Street, October 20, 1915. Alonzo D. Biggard, photographer (PhillyHistory.org)

    The Rise of Neighborhood Noir
    The "Philadelphia Gothic" genre enjoyed a major breakthrough in the 1840s thanks to riots, crippling poverty, racial and religious discrimination and the lurid literature of George Lippard and Edgar Allan Poe. But the genre's debut goes back to the 1790s, when Charles Brockden Brown mongered his brand of Philly-based fear.
