Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we'll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, and more. Have something you want discussed? Let us know. This week’s topic: What are you thankful for, Philly?
It’s been quite the year here in Philly. Since this time last year, this city became the country’s first World Heritage City. We elected a new mayor who made waves by passing a soda tax to fund, among other things, early education. We hosted the Democratic National Convention and plenty of political rallies.
All this to say, while times may seem tense and trying right now, this city witnessed a lot of good and positive moments this year. And here at Curbed, our motto is, “Love where you live.” So for this week’s open thread, we want to know: What are you thankful for in this city?
Are you grateful about something in your own neighborhood? Thankful for the city’s public space? History? Architecture? Downright good food?
We’d like to gather some comments here, on Twitter, and on Facebook into a post that we’ll feature on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. On social media, be sure to use the hashtag #ThankfulPHL in your response.
And for what it’s worth, we’re always thankful for your insight, support, and critiques.
