A stroll down South Street always opens up both a vista of humanity as well as some interesting shops. Whether it is something to do with books on spirituality, old records, or new sneakers there seems to be something for everyone. Of course people watching here is always fun as well. I didn't get to sample any of the restaurants but there definitely was a range of choices.

South Street was far more fun years ago. When "mall" style stores moved in, it seemed teenagers moved in as well. Gone are the days when you went to see a great alternative band at JC Dobbs then hung out at one of the bars until closing.

Aside from the TLA, the street now holds little attraction for this 54 year old. Yeah, I know, I sound like I'm about to yell "get off my street, you brats!" *snicker*

This used to be a great vibrant street full of all different types of characters. now it's only filled with undesirables. Such a shame, South Street used to be a Philly landmark.

South street is the center for hip, odd and way out there as well as some fo the best casual food eating in the city. The street is busy all day long but really comes into its own late at night into the early mornign hours. You can park on South street itself but there are few spots and hard to come by but several self pay parking spots are just a block away with one of the largere ones being at 5th and Manionk just 100 yds off South Street
