Announcing Our First Contest: Worst Rehab Ever

Since Clybourne Park covers gentrification and issues surrounding residential rehabs, we’re asking readers to submit a photo of the worst rehab they can find in Philadelphia. We’ll accept either a tasteless rehab or an unfortunate new construction building. Something that doesn’t fit in with its surroundings, or the rest of the city. Something that uses cheap materials, or features regrettable architectural choices. To give you an idea of what could win, here’s an example:


Winner gets two tickets to a show of your choice at the Arden this season. Runner up gets a framed, signed glamor shot of Mr. Fox.

Email your submission to, and use the subject line Arden Ticket Giveaway. Provide your name, preferred email address, and preferred contact number. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, March 30th. Winners will be chosen by Naked Philly staff, and all decisions are final. By submitting a photo for this contest, you are giving us permission to publish the photo (and we just might!). Your privacy is important to us, and we will not share your name, unless you really, really want us to do so.

Ooh, this is gonna be fun.
