    The history in pictures of West Philadelphia's forgotten 'Flatiron building' | Inga Saffron
    Thanks to the internet and social media outlets like Instagram, we have more opportunities than ever to view images of buildings and places we might never visit. But quantity shouldn't be confused with quality. Those two-dimensional concentrations of pixels can tell us only so much.

    Philadelphia write-in candidate: I won with one vote
    A Philadelphia resident was shocked to receive a letter Friday saying they won an election earlier in the month - apparently because no one else cast a vote. "I literally yelled 'what the hell' when I opened the letter," Phillip Garcia told The Hill.

One of the ballot questions for next week.

    Philly voters to decide if city workers will be trained to prevent sexual harassment
    Since the #MeToo movement has gained momentum over the last nine months, corporations across the country and in Philadelphia are evaluating their policies on sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. Many employees have sat through training sessions on the topic. But for city workers in Philadelphia - which does have a prevention policy - there's no mandatory training in place.
