Most Philadelphians believe that Center City goes no farther than South Street. But according to a new report from the Center City District, parts of South Philly are also included in what is being called the “Greater Center City.”
The report says that this “Greater Center City” area continues south beyond South Street to Tasker Street and the 19146 and 19147 zip codes.
According to this report, the bounds of Center City have been expanding for the past 25 years. This new definition of Center City’s bounds now make Center City Philadelphia’s downtown population the second largest in the country.
More from The Inquirer:
In light of the report, take a walk down Tasker Street, the southern boundary of Greater Center City or whatever you want to call it. (We’ll visit the northern line next week.) You’ll see all the unmistakable signs of the change transforming the city and all the things that come with it. The beauty, the energy, the awkwardness, and the pain.
