Neighborhood Walking Tour Series

This event is no longer on sale.

Sunday August 7

2:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

Northern Liberties

William Penn stipulated that 10,000 acres north of the original city become “liberty lands.” Once home to many of the city’s breweries, this funky, culturally diverse neighborhood today is the home of many artists and writers. See the old and the new and make note of the many little neighborhood eateries along the way.

Meet in front of the Holy Trinity Romanian Orthodox Church at 723 N Bodine St, Philadelphia, PA 19123 on the Brown Street side

Note: The 2nd Street festival is being held along 2nd street from 12pm-9pm. We will do our best to avoid crowds and with the headsets, we should be fine. Please be aware of the change in meeting location. Be sure to allow extra time for travelling as parking will be extremely limited. Public transit is encouraged.
