I'm going back to Philly 4x before December , one trip will be next week after part 2 of my Riverline towns is finished. So I will go see the New Race Street Pier and get a Cheesesteak.

Great pictures, everyone.

Looks like you took a liking to Old City, Nexus4Jersey.

I also love your pics of the Race Street Pier Park, jm02. Really an awesome new addition to the waterfront.

So can I have advice for my small visit to Philadelphia?

I'm not big on skyscrapers or historical sites - but I'm sure I can find them if I change my mind.

What I like are quirky neighborhoods, courtyards, gardens, narrow streets, developed alleys, etc. Greenery in an urban context is good. Just by way of example I love Charleston SC, but BTDT so many times I'm looking for something different.

Not big into shopping or bars but I could use advise on unique restaurants.
