The Inquirer breaks news again.
“The farther up you live, the more muffled the sounds of the city are,” Needleman said. “When we first moved here, we were conscious of what I call Philadelphia crickets – the burglar alarms that sound day and night.” After a while, though, from 17 floors up, “you are no longer conscious of them.”
A news story about this? Are you kidding? Since when has the Inquirer become the society page????
