"I love to wander around Philadelphia, down Walnut Street all the way down to the Delaware River...all those little streets, it’s almost like being back in England."

Simon Doonan
Creative Ambassador-At-Large, Barneys New York

Offbeat and Always On
From its bohemian '60s roots as the place where "hippies meet," South Street has never been about conformity. Today, its crazy quilt of quirky shops, edgy fashions, chic boutiques, galleries, and scores of bustling bars and restaurants make South Street Philly's foremost fishbowl for 24-hour people-watching and photo-taking.
