Two Great Sites, Now Under One Umbrella

Changes are coming to Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy Patch.

By now, everyone has noticed something different about Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill Patch. More content is being shared between the two sites. News that wouldn't usually cross the Cresheim Valley Road line has been appearing on both sites.

As of Thursday, Feb 7, we will be merging Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill Patch in an effort to strengthen our coverage of both communities.

Based on the ways we’ve seen you, our faithful readers and advertisers, use the two sites, it was just good common sense to combine them. Now, instead of asking you to check two sites for the news and information you need from Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill you’ll have it all in one place.

We know...change can be scary. But we hope you’ll give us a chance to show you that we’ll still be offering the same robust coverage of everything happening in both Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill. In fact, this is meant to help us provide better coverage of the things that matter to residents of both communities - which is something we’re always striving to do!  

As always, let me know what you think. Leave me a comment here or email me at nathana@patch.com.

This a great idea. Change is scary but this is a great move and it will benefit both communities.

Does this mean you'll stop posting headlines about crimes occurring in Germantown and other NW neighborhoods on the new CH-Mt. Airy Patch? If not, perhaps you should get it over with and just consolidate all of them into one website instead of posting the same irrelevant stories across the whole platform. This website does CH a lot of harm by posting all sorts of non-related events on the the CH Patch's front page, causing the casual non-resident or prospective resident to think our neighborhood is crime-ridden or something it really isn't.

As a resident of Chestnut Hill I think the merger is a great idea ! Gives me a chance to see what's happening in Mt. Airy, and also retail deals with the commercial growth. I, and many other shoppers have been forgotten by the retailers with the parking situation in Chestnut Hill, and won't put up with it !!

Can we call it "Airy Chestnut Patch?"

I don't think your coverage could possibly be any stronger, Nate Adams. I especially appreciate your current anchor story on both sites. It's so valuable for me to be able to compare approximately 3,000-square-foot homes from across the country. Whether you're a resident of Chestnut Hill or Mt. Airy, that's the kind of on-the-ground local reporting that keeps you coming back.

I hope so

Your neighborhood Center for Enrichment, located geographically in Chestnut Hill but drawing its "50 & better" members from all of northwest Philadelphia and nearby Montgomery County communities, thinks this is a good idea. There is already much overlap between the two (Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill). Now if only the news of far-flung Main Line neighborhoods would stop appearing on our pages as though it was happening here.

This is a great idea.

Dude...the guy is covering three sites that used to be covered by three editors! Please give him a break. Don't blame him for being overloaded. Check this out and let me know what you think. http://www.mediabistro.com/fishbowlla/aol-patch-double-duty-beverly-hills-studio-city-northridge-agoura-hills_b79496
