Walking the Eraserhood: Broad Street and Ridge Avenue

Via Flickr:
“Walking the Eraserhood” represents an ongoing street-level exploration of the Callowhill district and surrounding environs, a sort of virtual walking tour of the neighborhood.

This corner represents the northernmost stretch of the Eraserhood. (While not technically part of the Callowhill Neighborhood, the wedge defined by Ridge Avenue, Broad Street, and Spring Garden Street, is considered part of the area covered by the Eraserhood blog.) Northeast is the striking, long abandoned Divine Lorraine Hotel, once a commercial hotel, then a church residence, finally an empty hulk. Many owners have attempted to restore this beautiful monster to former glory. As of this writing, none have succeeded. To the northwest, the former Northwestern National Bank/Broad Street Trust Company dominates the corner. Currently the site houses People Community Credit Union and a PNC Bank branch.
