Philadelphia Snapshot Project & Related Neighborhood Survey Projects
A survey of vacant land and abandoned buildings in the city of Philadelphia,
including a use/characteristics survey, and a digital photograph. The digital
image and survey results were uploaded into the Neighborhood Information System.
Additional vacancy surveys were completed by the University City District, the
People's Emergency Center CDC, and other community based organizations. The
Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC) sponsored surveys of eight major
commercial corridors throughout the city in 2002.
