From Philly to Shanghai

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Gothamist launched two new sites in two new cities today: Shanghai and Philly. You can get to know the Phillyist staff a little bit by checking out their coverage of Live 8. There's a bunch of great stuff on Shanghaiist (a city we know very little about) but we'll point to the pseudo-LA related piece of news -- the opening of a CPK in Shanghai Center.

Welcome aboard!
