Developer and blogger Ori Feibush has figured out how to get attention.
Feibush’s latest move in his battle against the city’s Redevelopment Authority is a new blog called PleaseFixPhilly.com. (Though the city is battling back by saying the real estate developer has distorted claims)
The blog is simple, with only one post: a letter to the Philadelphia Revelopment Authority, detailing how it has “failed” Feibush. Since Friday, the post has received 80 comments, many of which are in support of Feibush.
Earlier this month, the Daily News reported on how the city threatened legal action against Feibush for cleaning up a Southwest Philadelphia lot he did not own. The story got national press and even got ‘hacktivist’ group ANONYMOUS involved. On Friday, the city held a press conference refuting many of Feibush’s claims. More of the city’s response can be seen here, much of which labels Feibush more PR maven than victim.
Feibush has leveraged the power of the blogging with his popular real estate blog Naked Philly, which he was secretly publishing until he was outed last year.-30-
