Philadelphia - Elfreth's Alley

Elfreth's Alley is popularly known as the USA's oldest residential street – it dates back to the first days of the eighteenth century.

Today thirty-two houses, built between 1728 and 1836, line the alley. They form one of the last intact early American streetscapes in the nation.

Love this little street - we went there real early so we were the only tourists there (us and a German guy that took a photo of Ben and me that I will share soon).

Celine: I just saw your comment on my blog. If you are ever in Chicago, let me know and perhaps we can do a little sightseeing together . . . I would love to meet you.

This would be so much fun to visit! Wouldn't you just love if residents let you see the inside as well?
