    What We Talk About When We Talk About Tax Collection - The Philadelphia Citizen
    Welcome to Taxadelphia, one of the nation's highest-taxed and poorest cities, where the Mayor has once again proposed reaching into citizens' pockets. This time, the proposal is a 6 percent property tax increase-the fifth such hike in the last decade-and an 8 percent increase in the real estate transfer tax.

    The hottest Philly neighborhood no one is talking about
    No one could argue that Olney, in upper North Philadelphia, is gentrifying. But that doesn't mean the neighborhood isn't revitalizing. In the afternoon when schools let out, kids weighed down with colorful backpacks fill the sidewalks of tidy rowhome blocks. The neighborhood's North 5th Street shopping district bustles with Colombian cafes, Jamaican bakeries, and Korean restaurants.
