I love walking to and from work whenever I am in Philly. The route I take is filled with interesting homes, vastly different neighborhoods, and cool shops.
I live in South Philadelphia, and there is nothing cookie cutter about this place. As you stroll northward you are surrounded by different cultures, different smells, different senses of community.
I love the rooftop garden and the little balcony filled with plants and funky pots. I've seen the owner only once. She has a mop of frizzy blonde hair and an air of strength and confidence. I wonder what she does for a living, why she chose this little loft space, what she thinks of her surroundings.
Perhaps my favorite part about the house though is the front door.
I'm jealous of the garage but also struck by the modern simplicity and her nod to Euro funk with her tow away sign.
from now on I hope to post a little somethin' on Tuesday's about where I live. I think that neighborhoods (and I'm partial to mine) are so intriguing.
What do you notice when you stroll about town?
