    The area is a fun place to walk around, window shop, stop for coffee or just sit in the park on a bench and read. - Nikki

    One of the five original open-space parks in the city. Grab a bench and people-watch in this bustling square, then head to one of the surrounding sidewalk cafes for lunch.

    Look for the Visit Philly crew near the goat at 4 pm on 4sqday (4/16 – get it?). They’ll have giveaways for the first 16 people to show them their check-in.

    One of five original open-space parks planned by William Penn, this one is named after 18th-Century astronomer David Rittenhouse. It's now one of the most expensive areas to live in the city.

    DO NOT FEED THE PIDGEONS. Watching them fly in formation to the peanuts that you probably got from the five guys near Liberty Place is one of the most frightening things I've ever seen.

    Be alert of the big rittenhouse bush rats!! They'll catch ya by surprise during warmer seasons. Btw bring a blanket, the ground is always moist for some odd reason, unless you enjoy muddy grass stains

  • Thom V.

    Good spot to watch weirdo pseudo gypsey people with hooks hoops and devil sticks. Just look out for a flying sock with a tennis ball stuck in it.
