Temporary SubReddit Forum Seeks to Find The Best of Every Philly Neighborhood

What are these hoods really like?

Here’s your chance to sing praises (or not?) to your neighborhood if you feel it’s been overlooked for other sections of the city.

A temporary subreddit called r/phillyhoods is open to everyone from locals to tourists to contribute their own knowledge of Philadelphia neighborhoods (activities, livability, safety, etc). The goal is to gather enough info to “improve [their] wiki without crowding the main page of r/philadelphia” and attract visitors to areas other than Center City.


So go! Threads on Logan Square, Old City, and others are sorely lacking in responses as of publishing time!
