    THE BROWNINGS (Orbiter 3): Let me count the f%&*ing ways
    The love letters between Victorian poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning and her poet-husband Robert Browning are perhaps the most famous in literary history. In a heartfelt moment at the opening of Sam Henderson's new play centered on the couple's exile in Florence, Italy, Elizabeth Barrett Browning tells her husband, "I'm going to dip your cock in laudanum and fuck you til i'm high".

A rare Queen Village mansion eludes redevelopment, will remain a home

Land-use maps from the 1940s show that 113-21 Bainbridge St. was not always the five-lot estate that it is today. According to a photo in the city’s archives, the 100 block of Bainbridge Street consisted of simple and modest rowhouses in December 1957.

    A rare Queen Village mansion eludes redevelopment, will remain a home
    Despite Queen Village's heightened attractiveness in recent years, the rare estate-like property at 113-21 Bainbridge Street, owned by Philadelphia's Steen family, could not sell three years ago. But when it was put on the auction block earlier this year, it drew interest from developers, builders, and residents alike.
