CC is its downtown and Chestnut and Walnut are seen as its shopping streets. What they lacks is Larger Flagship stores of other Big cities. But still plenty of shopping on narrows streets.

I'm pretty sure they mean the Center City Philly blocks of these streets.
These streets are just south of Philly's City hall.

I'm not familiar enough with the University City segments of these streets. But I doubt they are what portions that Links Harvard Professor refers to? Maybe I'm wrong?

Yeah, you're probably right, he did mean the Center City sections, not the University City portions. My bad.
