2011-06-23: This Old House in Philly

Out on one of my early morning walks this past weekend I went up 3rd St., near Arch St. to get a picture of a salon Taylor used to work at. There were a lot of neat shops on the street, but the building that really got my attention was this dilapitated building mixed in with the thriving ones.

On the whole, it seemed to me that many buildings in Philly that were vacant 2 years ago are now occupied. So maybe the economy is on the rebound. It was great to see people hustling and bustling around from store to store and filling the sidewalk cafe's. Don't let this picture cloud your judgement of Philadelphia. It was just more interesting to me. Philly is so alive with art and museums and culture and history. I love it there. If you haven't been, you've got to go!

Have a good one

ps. Have you ever heard of the Megabus? Cost us $10 round trip from Boston to Philly because we ordered tix 2 months ago. Would have been cheaper if we ordered earlier. Good bus with wifi. A little cramped for a 7-hour trip, but you can't beat the price.
