American Street

Society Hill 14

Return to the corner of Second and Spruce. Walk south toward the Head House. Before reaching Pine Street, however, turn right on Delancey and stroll the long block to 3rd Street, passing Philip Street and American Street on the north side. Take one side of the street going and the other side returning. Small houses with their appealing pent eaves above the first floor and Drinker's Court (1765) — a tiny and charming hideaway — are to be seen on this one street. Return to 2nd Street.
