| Took some pics yesterday, of what will be my regular walk home from the train. Well, a bit of a round-about way, since I'm still exploring the place. I'm in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, roughly halfway between the Elevated section of the Market-Frankford El / Subway and the Girard Avenue Trolley line (which due to major track work is now running buses instead of streetcars for at least the next two years, bah!).
There's a bus that can take me almost door-to-door to one of the stations as well, but I think when I have to take the train here I'm just gonna be walking to it for the most part, unless it's pouring buckets. Just like I did back in Jersey, and when I was briefly in Oakland. And there's no need to check schedules for the MFL, as trains run every 6 minutes or better between about 7 AM and 7 PM, then every 10 - 15 minutes between 7 PM and 7 AM (Nite Owl buses serve the line between about midnight and 5 AM).
And with that, let's go for a walk around my little corner of North Philadelphia!
|Moved into my new place yesterday, and had to drop the rental van off at the airport in the morning. Took the SEPTA Airport Line back to Center City from there, and since it was getting hot(!) I just bought my SEPTA System Map from their store on Market Street and ran right back underground to the subway. Oh, and I had to be back here for the internet guy to hook my place up, too.
Ten minutes after departing Center City, we come to my choice. Get off at Berks or York-Dauphin? Either is pretty much the same distance walk to my place, so I chose York-Dauphin yesterday, just to ride the train an extra 60 seconds or so. :)
Yo, Adrian! This building was used for the exterior shots of Mighty Mick's Gym in the Rocky films...
Off Front Street and moving east, on my way into the Jay-borhood. Sorry, couldn't resist saying it again. :)
Stoops are for sittin'! :)
My new coffee shop...
And we're getting close!
Many more walks to come soon...
