DescriptionWithout revolution, industry, or influence, says author Nathaniel Popkin, Philadelphia lives on by invention. Here, in the loving hand of the city planner-turned-writer, is the architecture of Philadelphia's current re-invention: its beguiling founding ideals, the physical ruins of its might, and the search, amidst rowhouse streets, for elevation, for an open city that delights, inspires, and performs.
