The Possible City: Exercises in Dreaming Philadelphia

The Possible City: Exercises in Dreaming Philadelphia

by Nathaniel Popkin

Paperback(New Edition)



“Philadelphia without revolution, industry, or influence,” says author Nathaniel Popkin, “lives on by invention.” The Possible City emerges from our dreams. Here, in the loving hand of the city planner-turned-writer, is the architecture of Philadelphia's present resurgence. Here are the city's beguiling founding ideals, the physical ruins of its might, and the search, amidst row house streets, for elevation, for an open city that delights, inspires, and rewards.
