“Overrated as a Street”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is more like a glorified alley. Barely two lanes. Always crowded. Parking is a mess. Bike lanes and bus lanes are a joke. This is a street that city planners forgot or couldn't do anything with.

“A Return to Drexel University”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I had to bring the family back the campus. I could not believe how much it has changed. It was good to see they decide to keep a few of the building but most of them appear to be recent adds within the last 20 years....

“Fantasic street in Philly!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love Chestnut St especially as you get closer to Old City. Some of the best restaurants in the city can be found along this street. There's also all the old beautiful architecture to see.
