Frontline vs. Gawker: Who Gets Philadelphia Right?

New, 4 comments

This episode of the venerated PBS documentary series Frontline will air tonight:

Watch Fast Times at West Philly High on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.

From a post by Caity Weaver:

Philadelphia, the most populous city in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a town steeped in culture and history. While it is located just an hour and a half train ride outside of New York City, few have ever set foot there, lending credence to the popular myth that Philadelphia, once a thriving colonial metropolis, has long since washed away, earning it the nickname "America's Atlantis."
