Hidden City Philadelphia Month

June is Hidden City Philadelphia month. Don't miss it!

PCB member Jude Robison took the Hidden City Philadelphia bus tour this week and was inducted into several hidden and not so hidden treasures. These included lovely libraries and disintegrating archives, museums, crypts, and more. There are art installations and performances, most of which are free, at the sites. Visit for more information.
Here are some snapshots.
