Hidden City Philadelphia – Exploring David Lynch’s “Eraserhood”

Sunday, June 3 at 1 PM – 2:45 PM

When David Lynch moved to Philadelphia in the late 1960s to attend PAFA, he discovered a city that was both terrifying and inspiring. Explore the neighborhood just blocks away from PAFA that so electrified Lynch’s imagination with two guides: Hidden City’s Peter Woodall and Lynch–and Eraserhood–aficionado, Bob Bruhin. During this one-and-a-half hour walking tour, we’ll delve into the area’s industrial history, as well as the sights and sounds that inspired Lynch’s movies, particularly Eraserhead.

“Well,” he said, “if you were from here, you might call it Spring Garden or Callowhill. If you were a developer, you’d call it the Loft District. And if you were a hipster” — here I felt a little judged — “you’d call it the Eraserhood.”
