From the “Tower of Truth” to the decaying Metropolitan Opera House, to the remnants of its days as “Auto Row,” North Broad has the goods.

Your guide on this walk up Broad Street between Vine and Poplar (with a few detours) is GroJLart, author of the foul-mouthed Philaphilia blog and Hidden City’s The Shadow Knows column. He’ll detail the past, present, and future of darn near every building, garage, surface lot, big promise, and broken dream this street has ever seen. You’ll never look at this stretch of North Broad the same way again!

We’ll gather on the northwest corner of Broad and Vine Streets. Questions, concerns, conundrums? Email Hidden City tour director Pete Woodall at pwoodall@hiddencityphila.org or call him at 267-259-7112
