Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

South Street

South Street

One of the most interesting streets in Philadelphia, South Street is best known for its eclectic shops, boutiques, restaurants and pubs. It’s also a place to see colorful characters—including the hipsters, goths, punk crowd and others who flock to their respective meeting places—and colorful walls, such as the pretty mural on this building between 16th and 17th Streets.
