If you’re in the mood for some local flavor, you’ll love a trip through Philadelphia’s neighborhoods. Located in the Fairmount neighborhood, Green Street is a picturesque tree-lined street with charming architecture. Close by you’ll find Fairmount Avenue and the Art Museum, plus restaurants and shops that will make your taste buds water. The city has a lot to offer and there are many attractions that won’t disappoint you.

Philadelphia has over a dozen utilities operating in its right-of-way, including water and sewer lines. Phone and gas lines also run underground, and fiber optic cables are becoming more difficult to accommodate. And while there are dozens of different agencies and entities that govern specific areas of Philadelphia, the number of streets is still relatively small. This city is characterized by a high pedestrian density, making walking an easy and safe option. And, of course, there are taxis that have lights on top!

Another Philadelphia street to visit is Elfreth’s Alley, which dates back to 1703. The alley was home to tradesmen and artisans in the eighteenth century. Today, you can tour 32 historic houses on this street. The alley is now a museum, and its homes reflect Philadelphia’s rich history. Today, real estate owners are eager to invest in property on Elfreth’s Alley and other historic areas.
