“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.

The vibrant, imposing temple owned by Congregation Rodeph Shalom dominates the east side of the street, here. Congregation Rodeph Shalom founded in 1795 is the oldest Ashkenazi congregation in the United States.

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.

On the southeast corner stands a reasonably well preserved example of a classic filling station from the early days of automobile travel. The northeast corner supports a former power station for mass transit, planned for adaptive reuse, which will include forty apartment units, twenty parking spaces for cars, and ten spots for bikes.

The residential property on the northwest corner has been abandoned for many years, despite frequent plans to rehabilitate it. Somewhere in the history of the site, a fourth floor was demolished. Current plans are transform the 20K square foot building into 12 two-bedroom and four one-bedroom rental apartments. Looking northwest along Ridge, one can catch a first glimpse of the abandoned Divine Lorraine Hotel.
