Philly bus, subway, and trolley routes to take to get to know the city

The vintage trolley cars shuffle along Girard Avenue between Girard and 63rd in West Philly all the way up to Richmond and Westmoreland in Port Richmond, so it’s a great way to explore dozens of Philly neighborhoods from the window of a piece of history, no less.

    Want to get to know Philly? Take these bus, subway, and trolley routes
    As the fifth most walkable city in the U.S., there's perhaps no better way to explore Philadelphia than by foot. But Philly is a big place with a lot to see, so if you really want to cover some ground (without getting stuck on the Schuylkill in a car), your best bet is to see the city by bus, trolley, or subway.

Horace Trumbauer’s Lynnewood Hall just got a $1M pricechop

920 Spring Avenue, Elkins Park [Frank Johnson, BHHS Fox & Roach]

    Horace Trumbauer's Lynnewood Hall just got a $1M pricechop
    Start counting those pennies: The enormous Lynnewood Hall estate in Elkins Park is still up for grabs and now asking $1 million less. The pricechop comes three months after the 33-acre estate re-listed for $17.5 million in June. Perhaps the price tag wasn't enough to convince anyone to take on the ultimate fixer-upper, thus it's new price tag of $16,500,000.
