Have You Been To Philadelphia?


Recommended Posts

* Is Market Street safe between 40th and 69th Streets around MFL stations (and West Philadelphia overall)?

 

* Are Front Street and Kensington Avenue safe around MFL stations?

 

* How do you access Millbourne (MFL) from Market Street?

 

* Can you transfer between the MFL and Broad Street Subway and the MFL and Ridge Avenue Connector?

 

* Why does the El go underground next to the sidewalk at 45th and 44th Streets instead of in the middle of Market Street?

 

* Which Trolley routes are the best in terms of scenery?

 

* Which Regional Rail routes are most interesting to railfan?

The R3 (West Trenton Line), R5 (Paoli-Thorndale Line) and the R6 (Norristown Line) are pretty good scenic routes to railfan as far as Regional Rail goes.

 

Front and Kensington is a bit dangerous if you ask me. A bus driver driving a route a few blocks north got assaulted violently a few months ago.

 

West Philly is not too bad, but the areas surrounding a 3 to 5-block radius of the route G bus can be a nightmare at certain times of the day.
