Historic University City in West Philadelphia

Just before and after the Civil War, West Philadelphia became one of America's first "Streetcar Suburbs." Today, University City - the easternmost part of West Philly is home to University Of Pennsylvania (a most prestigeous 'Ivy League" university), Drexel University, USP (the University of the Sciences Philadelphia - oldest pharmacy college in the US, founded by Benjamin Franklin), Walnut Hill College, etc. This historic residential neighborhoodof shady streets has some of the best examples of Victorian residential architecture from 1860 through 1900:

That corner is not more than 10 or 15 yards from my house. It is the corner of 42nd Street and Baltimore Avenue looking north on 42nd.

Any of the Philly guys on this forum, I am a student in my senior year at Saint Joseph's University and I'm currently living in the Wynnefield neighborhood. Very nice area, the "suburban" part of Philadelphia. I love the location as it is close to school and also close to Manayunk which as one poster previously mentioned is almost a different city in and of itself. Just beginning to discover different areas of the city but I love it already. O yea and go Phillies!

Comcast is just shy of 1,000 feet. It is the tallest building between NYC and Chicago.

I'm glad you like people scenes because I'm a bit of a voyeur.

How can you not love Philadelphia? The architecture is some of the best in all of North America. I lived there for 12 years and am still discovering sections and streets that I had never knew existed. Now compare this photo thread to my Chicago one from last week and you can see the unique character of each city. Philadelphia has much narrower streets.

Philadweller, I love the nighttime skyline photo - #63 - just above. Can you please post it on another thread (I think it is Skybar or Travel) called "Post a picture of your city" ... it will make me so proud of being from The City Of Brotherly Love.
