Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

East Passyunk Avenue

East Passyunk Avenue

A diagonal interruption through Philadelphia’s horizontal/vertical grid layout, East Passyunk Avenue runs through the heart of South Philadelphia. The area along and around the thoroughfare boasts a wealth of independent boutiques, coffee shops and cafes, plus some of the city’s most authentic red-gravy restaurants. Situated about midway along the street’s length is Passyunk Square, where the “Singing Fountain,” benches, a chess table sand the surrounding Italian eateries create a European vibe.
