South Street, Philadelphia

5 Conversations

It has been a major complaint, with increasing frequency over the past several years, that South Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA is losing its edge, veering towards the mainstream and becoming like any other trendy shopping area, rather than the alternative hang-out for the ubercool it once was. The pressure from encroaching food and store chains of international prestige leads some to believe that its hip days are over.

However, not many suburban shopping malls still have punk-only clothing stores called 'Zipperhead', or indeed, speciality condom shops. South Street can retain at least some of its former dignity.
