“Our nation’s oldest residential street”
Elfreth's Alley — popularly known as "Our nation’s oldest residential street" – dates back to the first days of the eighteenth century. Twenty years after William Penn founded Pennsylvania and established Philadelphia as its capital, the town had grown into a thriving, prosperous mercantile center on the banks of the Delaware River.
Great if you're walking around :)
A fun and free place to visit in historic Old City. If you're doing a walking tour of Philadelphia (and that's the best way to see the city), make this a part of it.
They Alleyway itself is very small, but a really chic place to look at.
