Free Streets

Free Streets

This weekend, Philadelphia will be bringing back one its more popular civic anomalies, Philly Free Streets.  Started as a movement after the Pope's visit in 2015 closed down many streets and allowing citizens to bike and and walk freely, the annual event is now in its second year and mimics that car-free experience.  Last year, nearly 30,000 people enjoyed the pedestrian-and-bike-friendly closed route along South Street and MLK Drive, proving the popularity of the event. 

Following a course down mostly 5th, 4th, and 3rd Streets, this year's event seeks to connect some less visited neighborhoods with downtown as well as show why better street design can promote healthier neighborhoods.

Open street festivals have become major selling points for the neighborhoods that this event encompasses: Northern Liberties, Old City, Fishtown, and Old Kensington.  If you love a sunny weekend afternoon outside with your friends and want to live close to all the action, reach out!  I'd love to help you find your next home in one of these areas.
