North Broad

Jake Varughese, Widener University ’23 | @jjvarughese

I love the history of North Broad, plus there’s so much to do! You can experience talented performers in amazing shows at the Temple Performing Arts Center (a historic church converted into an event venue), or grab some popcorn and see the latest film at AMC Broadstreet 7—flash your student ID every day after 4 p.m. for a discount!).

North Broad is also super walkable—you can stroll down to the huge Common Threads Mural or catch a live show at The Met. For a classic Philly pie, a must-try is Santucci’s Original Square Pizza. Check out one of the local food trucks, like the Honey Truck, for the best chicken & waffles!

At the very start of North Broad, near City Hall, there’s also the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, better known as PAFA. PAFA is the oldest art museum and art school in the United States. Bring your student ID along to snag discounted admission!
