On the Old Waterfront
Time & Location
About the Event
Philadelphia’s Delaware waterfront has changed dramatically throughout the city’s history, but traces of the old waterfront can be spotted if you know where to look. During this walk through Old City and Society Hill, we’ll see remnants of Dock Creek, learn why Front Street is called what it is, and discover the last stairs that lead to the city’s original waterfront. The tour ends at Society Hill Towers.
Location: Meet at the entrance to Washington Ave. Pier along the Delaware River bike trail (where Washington Avenue meets S. Columbus Blvd).
