Anyone that's been to Philly knows that it's pretty easy to navigate since it's a grid. The streets running East-West were named from the trees found in the area. South Street used to be Cedar, Sassafras Street later became Race Street since people used to race their horses down it. The streets running North-South, on the other hand, are in numerical order. But instead of 1st street, you'll find Front Street. And that's because William Penn, the founder of the city and a religious man, felt that nothing was 1st
before God, hence no 1st street. pretty cool :o)
Aside from the Liberty Bell, the Rocky Balboa statue is the second most popular Philadelphia attraction. We live by the Art Museum, so we have witnessed many people running up the steps like Rocky does in the movie. Just found out today though that he really didn't run up all 72 steps, and that his stunt double did most of them. What a wimp :o)
Well... lots of love to Philly...
After all, it is "the city of brotherly love"... little lisa lollipop
