10 Awesome Car-Free Photos From Philly’s First-Ever Open Streets Event
In case you missed it, this past Saturday marked Philly’s first-ever open streets event, Philly Free Streets. South Street was closed to cars (well, mostly — there were some car-crossing intersections) from Front Street to the South Street Bridge where the route carried on along the Schuylkill River Trail and onto MLK Drive all the way to East Falls Bridge.
A car-free South Street filled with runners, cyclists, walkers, unicyclists, roller skaters and more was quite the (VERY crowded) sight to see, and if you weren’t able to make it, not to fear: We’ve rounded up some of our favorite Instagram photos from the morning (including a great one of Mayor Kenney power-walking with the people in a Bob Marley shirt that you probably — definitely — owned the poster version of your Freshman year of college) so you can soak it all in for yourself. Until next time!
