Phiadelphia: South Street

We're staying in Center City this time around. We almost always stay in Penn's Landing, but I figured a change of scenery would give us a new perspective on the city.

We've still made it out to Old City/Society Hill a few times, but only passed through South Street.

when I first started coming down to Philly, when my sister was looking at schools down here, all I did was wander up and down South Street, hitting the shops, eating at Jim's Steaks and bar-hopping.

South Street is Philly's answer to the strip of Bleeker Street between 6th Avenue and LaGuardia Place. It's totally focused on college and post-college crowds. There are a million places to get drunk and hook up and tons of so-so restaurants that sell wings and chicken fingers, along with local (or international) variations like Shwarma or Cheesesteaks.

I guess I've aged out of the demographic, since I don't tend to hit either very much these days. The only times I go to Bleeker is when I want to sit out and people-watch the 'kids' passing by.
