Walking Around: Northern Liberties

Did I somehow manage to spam my own blog with my Polyvore creations? Oops! Looks like I forgot to turn off that “share on WordPress” feature. Now you all know my deep dark secret. I build outfits late at night when I am up feeding the Cub. Then I spend an inordinate amount of time window shopping for shoes on Zappos. Anyway, now you know. I’m glad I got that off my chest.

Over the weekend I had brunch with some girlfriends in the Northern Liberties section of Philly. This is a neighborhood that has been in transition for several years now, and there’s still a ton of construction going on. One of the oldest sections of the city, NoLibs was once home to great deal of industry which is now being demolished in favor of new construction. Walking around you get a mix of old, modern, modern made to look old, and a lot of great places to eat and browse around. Since I parked so stinking far from the cafe, I took some snaps with my iPhone as I made my way through the narrow streets and navigated past all the construction. Most photos have been edited using VSCOcam.

In high school I came here with a couple friends. It was a jazz bar back then, and we felt super classy even though it was kind of a dive.

Here’s what is looks like around back. I love the typography, I’m sorry to see it go.
