text: seven walking tours through historic Philadelphia

Smedley Street

Rittenhouse District 20

On we go to Smedley Street, a favorite with out-of-towers. Smedley Street runs throughout the city, but not continuously. Sometimes it disappears and is picked up again many blocks away. This particular block has long been the home of artists, writers and members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. This street is architecturally varied and a treat for fire-mark enthusiasts.
