Lets start off with Rittenhouse Square.










Locust Street


Walnut Street





There's that Philly sneer, he's very "Lord of the Rings".




Logan Circle


The Art Museum






Boathouse Row

A ride along the river.

Back to Broad








some South Street

Old City












oooh its a Brougham


and finally some shots from the Ben Franklin Bridge

God I love Philly. I really would love to visit there again, maybe even move there some day (but LA is next on my list hopefully). :)

Great pictures!

Just wanted to add that I particularly love this picture. It really makes it look like you're in a narrow canyon with very high walls. The raindow equality flags are nice to see as well. :)

Ever been to Woody's? I got drunk out of my mind there and I'm still not sure how I managed to walk back to my friend's apartment a few blocks away, LOL. :lol:

I've been going to Woody's for 18 years now, well not every night. I live in the gayborhood and Woody's is 2 blocks from my house. I'm on my way now actually.

Wednesdayyyyyyyyyy Baby kiddies night. Pure is sooo expensive but sooo nice.
Philly in the last few years seems to be cleaning up. More color, less grime.

Philadweller: I may soon be your neighbor. That 'hood is really looking good to me.

Cool, I didn't know there was a Woody's in Philly. Does it have bragging rights over the one in T.O Btw. is it just me or does Philly, although obviously has a uniqueness of its own (architecture and history unparalleled in NA excluding Mexico City ie. history), seem to have similar streetscapes to Toronto?

Philadelphia definitely has a uniqueness of its own. Woody's being in Phila. is a sheer coincidence as its been around for 20+ years and is named after the owner Bill Wood.

Same here Saturday and Sunday actually, where is that fabulous thread of yours? I can't seem to find it. I love your people photos...and Waterfront Square seems to be getting tall. Maybe the Beluga whale will pass through on its way back from Trenton for a photo op from the Ben Franklin Bridge.
