Blight fright

    Philadelphia’s vast tracts of vacant land and abandoned buildings – about 40,000 properties by one count – are costing the city and taxpayers a fortune.

    Perhaps you heard WHYY’s Tom MacDonald’s story on Philadelphia’s blight problem influencing property values last week.

    Maybe you’re a property owner, dealing with blight in your neighborhood. Or maybe you have to look at an abandoned building from your apartment kitchen window.

    Either way, tune in to Radio TImes with Marty Moss-Coane today to hear her talk out the issue with experts.
