With more historic buildings from the colonial and federal periods of American history than anywhere else in the United States, many of Philadelphia’s original structures have been preserved in the Old City and Society Hill neighborhoods. Cast-iron storefronts, art galleries and Belgian block streets create a look and feel of an artist enclave and on the first Friday of each month, the galleries, studios, shops and restaurants open their doors in Old City for an exhibition of the neighborhood’s vibrant arts scene.
