On October 28, seven miles of Philadelphia streets—from 3rd and Chestnut in Old City all the way up to 5th and Indiana in Fairhill—will close to vehicular traffic for the second annual Philly Free Streets event. Roads will be open from 8am to 1pm for pedestrians, bikers, joggers and general gadabouts to stroll freely without the fear of any motorized disturbances, and local organizations and businesses, such as the Bicycle Coalition, will host events along the route throughout the day. Stroll the length of the route to experience a variety of diverse neighborhoods—from Historic Old City and Kensington along Germantown Avenue to the end point, El Centro de Oro, a thriving Latino commercial district. For a map and more information, including what to know if you usually park a car along the route, go here.
