Center City West and Fairmount
Philadelphians were playing the “how-are-we-connected?” game long before native son Kevin Bacon made “six degrees” famous. Nowhere is that more true than the blocks stretching out from Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia’s business district and social nerve center. This is the city’s most exclusive address, brimming with tony salons, pricey boutiques and some of Philadelphia’s most difficult-to-reserve restaurants. To the north, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philly’s museum mile, connects City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
