NEast Philly will fold at the end of 2013 after five years serving as a daily news website for Northeast Philadelphia. Below is a letter from Editor/Owner Shannon McDonald.
To all NEast Philly readers-
It is with great sadness that I announce the final month of publication of NEast Philly. The final post will appear on Dec. 31, 2013, and the site will remain static until June, when our web hosting expires.
