Help me out with this one, LOLadelphia readers: what is with these hideous homes being built around Temple, and further east in Fishtown/Northern Liberties?
These homes are so cookie-cutter and ugly, as if conceived by a drunk architect. This specific example of the phoniness brought by gentrification is particularly troublesome because those two brick homes to the left were recently built. So, why not build the other two homes of the lot in that style too? You know, so they fit in with the rest of the neighborhood which is 3 story brick homes? Someone really has to start speaking up against these hideous homes being built, because it doesn’t have to be this way. This isn’t happening in Brewerytown, and lots of building is happening there. It’s just very unfortunate is all.
