Philadelphia is changing: South Street - Howard Nelson
April 23, 2013.
As I walked my dogs this morning down South Street in Philadelphia, I realized what a transformation the 1400-2200 blocks of South Street In Philadelphia have been undergoing. From great new restaurants like Rex1516, Pumpkin, Cambridge, and Quick Fix to new bakeries including MagPie and Sweet Freedom, I was stunned by the pace of transormation on this corridor. Despite the economic woes of many, the restaurant business in Philadelphia is booming.
