The city of heritage is Philadelphia
Center City of Philadelphia. It's 11 o'clock. Breakfast or lunch, both are possible at this time of day. I went with friend Shamim to the Reading Terminal Market. What to eat! The longer the list of choices, the harder it is to make a decision.
Located inside a national historic establishment built in the 1893, this market houses a row of Wester Bar, Carmen's famous Italian cheese cake. The restaurant's transparent glass windows were laid out in a planned way. Through this window there is a view of the cooking process inside the restaurant. Seeing these at the moment of stomach appetite, water comes to the tongue. Despite the difficulty, it was possible to avoid it. Because Shamim declared that meat is not lawful, it cannot be eaten.
The famous Fourth Street Cookie Company had to appease the hungry by eating delicious chocolate-cookies and coffee. Of course, tea and biscuits and coffee cookies are always fun to enjoy. Center City covers a three-mile stretch of downtown Philadelphia. Delaware and Squirrel on the east and west sides are surrounded by two flowing rivers. Philadelphia-style Philadelphia City Hall is located in the Center City District. Stairs made of beautiful stone. It is now famous for shooting 'Rocky' cinema. At the northwest end is the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art.
We are exploring Center City on the east side of Broad Street. This time around, the idea of bringing a historical spirit to the trip came to mind. About a half-mile walk from the market, Independent Mall. This area has been awarded the title of 'America's Most Historic Square Mile'. Partial location of the historic National Freedom Park is also here. I walked past the north end of the mall. Where is the National Constitution Center. Here is the story of 'The Story of With the People' - an interactive forum. Here the constitution is written as inscription on glass.
Independents Hall is on the south side of the mall. This hall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Where the Declaration and Constitution of American Independence was signed. Beginning in the 1750 century, the Liberty Bell rose to Independence Hall over the next century. Which was then the Pennsylvania State House. At present, Liberty Bell has been placed in the adjoining building. This is Liberty Bell Center. For the first time in traditional bells cracked after using it for several years. In 1846, it was widened when renovated. And by doing so, another cracks were created. When it failed to repair, the bell became permanently silent.
The American Revolution Museum before Independence Mall. There is a Washington Headquarters tent. Where George Washington worked and slept during the American Revolution War. Two blocks to the north of the 'Betsy Ross House', I see Betsy himself there. In fact, she is an actress in the role of Betsy Ross. Asked him, George Washington told Betsy Ross to sew the American flag. I knew Betsy Ross and George Washington would go to the same church. Previously Betsy had done embroidered work for him.
Later I walked for a while to the nearest Alphrath's Alley. It's called the oldest residential street block in America. 32 buildings. The federal, Georgian, installations have been in place since 1720. People still live in structures today.
