Old City Street Signs

Old City Street Signs

Signs mark the intersection of 3rd and Market Streets in Historic Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood. From Market Street to Girard Avenue in Philadelphia, 3rd Street is known as N3RD Street (Nerd Street), a name that denotes the street’s significance to Philly’s tech industry. The Liberty Bell appears on Philadelphia street signs whose names are fewer than six letters.
