I left the Philadelphia area in '94 but will be coming back next week to spend the summer living and working downtown. Needless to say, I am psyched. I am also kind of vexed and wondered if I might ask for some chow assistance.
I'll be living at 13th between Locust and Walnut and working in one of the Liberty Center buildings and have been eagerly reading this board for months in preparation but have been largely unable to tell when places being described in downtown philadelphia were near where I'll be. So if anyone reading this has a moment, knows the area, and it feeling sympathetic, would you mind mentioning a couple places to check out within walking distance to where I'll be? From growing up in the area (Haverford), I'm familiar with Reading Terminal and Chinatown but that's pretty much it...so any suggestions in my immediate area would be most appreciated.
