South Broad Street’s scruffy, unsung big brother gets the attention it deserves in the newest tour from GroJLart, author of the foul-mouthed Philaphilia blog and Hidden City’s The Shadow Knows column. From the vacant “Tower of Truth” to the decaying Metropolitan Opera House, plus the Divine Lorraine (we can’t get inside either!), North Broad has the goods.
Groj will lead you on a long walk up North Broad between Vine and Poplar with a couple of detours, where he’ll detail the past, present, and future of every building, garage, surface lot, big promise, and broken dream this huge little street has ever seen. Whether you’re a history buff or just a Philadelphia enthusiast, anyone who has been on one of GroJLart’s other tours knows that you’ll never look at this stretch of Broad Street the same way again.
