Pick Your Favorite "Best Places to Live" Cover! We couldn't decide which of this month's Best Places to Live we should show — city or suburb — so we printed both. We'd love to know which one you prefer — and to hear what you think of both of them.Fun, right?
But wait. The city shot isn’t even real.
The suburban cover was shot at a suitably suburban house in Lower Merion, with a couple and a dog. The mag, alas, couldn't get the city look down. The photo was shot inside a Northern Liberties loft, and a skyline from another NoLibs location was superimposed, a mag rep says.Son of a bitch. We were just about to call Jill Rizen.
P-Mag: we were going to give the couple a kid, but, in the end, we felt it slanted a little too much toward no-fucking-way-is-this-believable-even-for-our-valium-loving-readers, so we went with a dog instead... and got the exact same effect [Philly Mag]
Center City way too far from Northern Liberties for the needs of Platt and Co. [Inky, last item]
