Sleuth: Solving city mysteries and answering burning questions

    Everyday, NewsWorks gets a lot of questions. Sometimes they’re about stories we’re chasing. Other times, people just want to know, what gives?

    Well, we can tell you.

    We’ve answered questions like:


    Why do people get to park in the middle of South Broad and other streets in South Philly?

    What is a “mahoff,” big or otherwise, and is that only a Philly term?

    Why is the Blue Route called the Blue Route?

    So, c’mon, ask us your questions. We’re as curious about some of these answers as you are.
