City Walks Deck: Philadelphia (Chronicle Books)

In 2008, I wrote City Walks: Philadelphia for Chronicle Books. Each card suggests a particular itinerary around a particular neighborhood or according to a theme. There’s plenty of Philadelphia history in here plus a focus on more modern happenings and architecture. I snuck in my favorite local public art and quirky hideouts — see Sculpture around City Hall, Society Hill’s Hidden Lanes and Gardens, and Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Period Rooms.
