I was in Philadelphia about 14 years ago and I've been trying to identify some places on the map but I don't know the city well enough. Any Philly experts able to help me???

The tour guide told me the apartment was a filming location for the sixth sense but I don't know if that's true. I've tried as best I can from Google Maps to find these locations but I'm stumped. Any help would be much appreciated.

the first two look like houses in Fairmount which would make sense since your 3rd picture is of the Eastern State Pen, which is in Fairmount. They also filmed some of the sixth sense in Fairmount Specifiaclly the scenes where the kid was locked in the room at the top of the stairs.

#5 is a picture taken on 5th street at Independence Mall. The building in the back across the street is the Curtis Center (6th street). This is the park behind Independence Hall.


This is about where the picture was taken.
