The Place to be — PhilaPlace

PhilaPlace.org is a portal for exploring the history, cultures, and architecture of Philadelphia’s neighborhoods.

Mayor Nutter will make the official announcement in the elegant Mayor’s Reception Room followed by a people’s party in Conservation Hall, with refreshments and live entertainment. What conversations will you have about the city’s history — where it’s been and where it’s going? What might you contribute to the story?
