               Check out this old bastard at Broad & Chew, way the fuck up at the top of North Philly. Its abandoned now but you can buy it for the low low price of $549k. Read all about it at the Hidden City Daily!

  1. OMG, why didn't I pay attention in college and land a high paying job? Half a mill?! That's a studio condo in an iffy part of DC! I'm amazed that Philadelphia is full of so much cheap landmark architecture that Oprah could literally buy entire neighborhoods, and I'm even more amazed that no one's done just that.

    Ya know, despite how underdeveloped North Broad is, one thing I love about it is that there's still a signature, landmark building or two at each major intersection that hasn't been torn down. If someone with enough money could just roadmap the street's potential by developing those buildings northward, the gaps would begin to fill in.
