Streets Dept Podcast – SN 2, EP 4: Thinking About Philadelphia’s Past, Present, and Possible Future, A Chat with Inga Saffron

January 8, 2019

I’m so thrilled to welcome Inga Saffron on the podcast today!

Inga Saffron is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and architecture critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Since 1999, she’s been thinking and writing about Philadelphia’s architecture, public space, city planning, and all that goes into making a city worth living in!

From maybe helping to save 30th Street Station’s iconic flipboard to redesigning that poorly planned park at 2nd and Market streets in Old City to eliminating Philly’s increasingly controversial tax abatements, investing in public parks and amenities, and even my 2012 petition to paint a mural on the back of Philadelphia’s 36-story PSFS Building, today I talk with Inga about Philly’s past, present, and possible future.
