Farewell, NEast Philly!

The website NEast Philly has given us plenty of joy but has also served an invaluable purpose: It has paid attention to an area of the city that is generally ignored or outright maligned. But founder/editor Shannon McDonald can’t do it all, so she has to discontinue the site as of the end of this year. It was truly excellent work, and we hope she returns to some kind of similar coverage of those neighborhoods in the future.

See her full goodbye missive here. (And for a link to a video of McDonald and the man who caused McDonald’s move from the Northeast, go here.)
