Eyes on the Street is a place for news, observations, and conversation about Philadelphia’s built environment. We seek to connect PlanPhilly's process and policy coverage with the experience of living in the city.
Here you’ll find discussion about good design, great neighborhoods, vibrant communities, interesting architecture past/present/future, smart planning and development projects, and the many individuals who make those things happen in Philadelphia. It’s also a space where Philadelphians can engage with one another about the built environment of their city.
