The “City of Brotherly Love”, “Philly” or, simply, Philadelphia is a dynamic metropolis encompassing important historical sites, ethnic neighborhoods, great museums, super restaurants and interesting architecture. Sometimes known affectionately as “little New York”, Philadelphia has a lot to offer to street photographers as even in the “dead of winter” it’s a walking city with plenty action going on.

“By the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st, revitalization and gentrification of historic neighborhoods attracted an increase in middle-class population as people began to return to the city. New immigrants from Southeast Asia and Central and South America have contributed their energy to the city.” – Wikipedia
