LET­TER FROM THE PUB­LISHER

Philadelphia Style - - Contents -

There has never been a bet­ter time to be a Philadel­phia res­i­dent than right now.

Within these last three years, our city has been rec­og­nized in­ter­na­tion­ally for wel­com­ing the Pope, host­ing the his­toric Demo­cratic Na­tional Con­ven­tion and, most re­cently, for the first time since 1936, as the host city for the NFL Draft. On the first night of the draft, Philadel­phia set an NFL Draft record, with more than 100,000 fans show­ing up on the Art Mu­seum steps. It was a great ex­pe­ri­ence for all.

On the lo­cal front, there are mon­u­men­tal res­i­den­tial and cor­po­rate build­ings pop­ping up from Old City to Bryn Mawr and ev­ery neigh­bor­hood in be­tween. To mark our an­nual Best of Style sum­mer edi­tion, we were thrilled to fea­ture an iconic city shot across a dou­ble-page spread that show­cases our ev­er­grow­ing sky­line.

With city growth comes a rein­vig­o­ra­tion of Philadel­phia Style as well. In May, we hap­pily an­nounced our ac­qui­si­tion by Mod­ern Lux­ury as we were wel­comed into a fam­ily of 84 ti­tles across 24 cities. What does that mean for our read­ers? Even more of Philadel­phia Style to en­joy. In 2018 we will in­crease to 10 is­sues. We will also pub­lish an­cil­lary pub­li­ca­tions in cat­e­gories such as home and de­sign, tourism, bridal, and a char­ity and so­cial date­book.

We could not be more ex­cited to see our city and our pub­li­ca­tions grow to­gether. We are look­ing for­ward to bright fu­tures ahead.
