Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia is building an expanded archive of cultural memory that includes multiple histories, re-place-ing the established with new narratives and understandings. Notes from invited artists and community members consider place via the street, sound, food, trees, rivers, and other portals.
Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia put out a call for "food note" submissions on Twitter. Below are two responses from Paul Mick.
What kinds of food are available to you in your neighborhood and what are not?

When you think of Philly, do particular memories of smells associated with food come to mind?
