305 Chadwick

Chadwick Street between Pine and Cypress has several intriguing houses. The elegant townhouse at 303 Chadwick features three black horse's-head hitching posts in front. Next to it, at 305 one comes to a curiosity; it looks like a beehive — or even a dovecote, a little reminiscent of the eccentric Barcelona architect Antonio Gaudi.

Head west on Cypress at the north end of Chadwick. Turn left (south) on 17th, then right (west) on Delancey to arrive at the Plays and Players Theater

Rittenhouse Square
