I'd say the Route 15 trolley, which passes one block to its north, is a major route.

Bus routes 31 and 46, not so much, but you can catch the 31 somewhere around 30th Street Station.

It's a five-block walk from 63d Street station on the El. 63d borders Cobbs Creek Park up to Arch Street, making the walk fairly pleasant.

That looks like a cheese steak place for people who live in that neighborhood. Max's cheese steak is geared to lots of people because its it right next to the broad street subway. I dont go deep into neighborhoods i am not a part of especiallly in this city. If it was on 62nd and Girard where i was able to hop right back on the 15 then i would probably sample the steak.

Many of these places are exactly that: places geared toward neighborhood customers where it's quite possible to get a better sandwich than the tourist traps.

Yes, I understand, but it's a little closer to where you are now than 4th and South is. I believe in getting to know the entire city and would encourage others to do same.
Like I said you or I are the only posters here who would ever go there. Tell me... you didn't feel a second of fear, right? My paternal family has a long history in that nearish area(Carroll Park and Haddington). My sister lives there. My 99 year old aunt lives there as do a couple of cousins.

I can see someone going there who has friends or family in that area or drives a car. Someone who doesnt drive or doesnt know anyone in that area should not be going to that Jim steaks.

I haven't had one in years, but Larry's near SJU also is/was a great spot too for cheesesteaks.

I live on a block that had three murders occur on it over an 18-month period, two of them about a month apart and at the same location.

No, I didn't.

I will admit, however, that I was in a car with a friend when we visited.

But I wouldn't have much of a problem walking there.

I'm of the general opinion that we let fear govern our actions too much, but I'm not going to fault someone for doing so.

Let's put it this way: I don't recall a single major crime posted by 2002 Subaru from that area.

Every Cheese steak place on my Top 5 list is around major areas so that's why I could never see myself going to Jim's on 62nd street. The Jim's on 4th and South would make more sense for me to visit.

1. Max's-(Broad and Erie next to Subway or 23 Bus)

2. Jimmy G's-(Broad and Fairmount next to subway or 4 or 16 Bus)

3. Steve's Prince of Steaks-(16th and Chestnut next to Subway)

4. Larry's Steaks-(54th and City Ave-next to St. Joes-52 or 44 Bus)

5. Pat's Steaks-(Across from Geno's-64 Bus)
