Big Lights, Center City

A gaggle of futuristic digital signage might soon be its their way to Center City. Catalyst Outdoors has drafted legislation that would create a “digital district” of “urban experiential displays,” or UEDs. This is, as close as I can guess, fancy developer-speak for “really fancy 3D billboards.” Natalie Kostelni, Catalyst rep, cheerily informed press late last week that the signs […]

One Little List: Some Blasts From Philly’s Past

True confession time: I’m a redditor. Self-styled as “the front page of the internet,” reddit is a little bit social media, a little bit news, a little bit entertainment… and a whole lot of time-suck. We have a love-hate relationship, reddit and me. The culture there is pretty bro-tastic and more than a little neckbeardy, but if you can tolerate […]

Loft District Plans Philly’s Answer to the High Line
