A week ago, we first brought you the story of local realtor and developer Ori Feibush’s efforts to green 1138-42 S. 20th St., a formerly blighted lot that’s been owned by the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority for nearly four decades. Over the past seven days, the story, first broken by the Philadelphia Daily News, has exploded across the country and the world, with coverage from every major news outlet from Idaho to Pakistan.
Today, Feibush has launched PleasefixPhilly.com, a site that compiles many of the photos and documents associated with this crazy tale, along with a letter from Feibush himself lambasting the PRA.
In response to this, the PRA is holding a press conference at the site of the garden today, at 4pm. We’ll be interested to see what they have to say on this subject.
Full disclosure: Ori Feibush owns OCF Realty, the parent company of Naked Philly.
