Very nice pics, enjoyed your thread! Thanks for sharing.

I love those alleys and quaint neighbourhoods, and those classic architecture buildings. The flowers shots are very pretty. Philadelphia is such a nice city!

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Gorgeous city! Shots like 32, 33 and 46 make me want to visit and explore every nook and cranny. Nice shots. Philly appears to have a lot more charm than I would have guessed.

I went there for the first time in many years recently. There's a ton to love about Philadelphia. Very underrated.

It is really nice to have another anchor city on the other side of PA. Pittsburgh in the west and Philly in the east. It is a true urban city with lots of solid architecture, vibrant neighborhoods, lot things to do and a good mass transit system and various commuter rail lines.

having poured through a lot of Philly threads over the years on here, this one truly captured Center City the best. A walkable, colonial city woven in and out of a dense, thriving, architecturally diverse core. The city appeared so elegant in these photos, though interestingly you mostly avoided its grandest and richest neighborhoods: Society Hill, Rittenhouse Square, and Fitler Square.

Camac street--is this the only street in America still made out of wood?

Thankyou , I did do parts of Society Hill. I will do Rittenhouse SQ and Fitler SQ in upcoming trips. Yes Camac Street is the only street made from Wood.

My Upcoming depending on the Weather...

Philadelphia : Manayunk , Fairmount Park , Chestnut Hill
Philadelphia Main Line Towns : Downingtown |Philadelphia : University City , Rittenhouse SQ , Fitler SQ
Trolley Suburbs of Philly : Drexel Hill , Upper Darby , Bywood
