The Philadelphia Grid Project is a long-term project with an attempt to document various areas of Philadelphia…similar to the Portland Grid Project. We set out each month to photographically document a pre-assigned area of Philadelphia in any way we choose. After each month, each photographer chooses one image to add to the archives of the project.

The assigned location for the month of January 2008 was an area of Philadelphia that roughly encompasses Broad Street to 33rd Street on the East and West…and slightly north of Lehigh Avenue and Spring Garden Street on the North and South. This part of the city includes the areas of Brewerytown, Fairmount, Francisville, and Sharswood.
