"The French Quarter is an official district of Philadelphia, designated by the city, stretching between 17th and 19th streets east and west and Walnut and Sansom streets north to south. The designation was formalized in 1999. According to City Paper, the French Quarter of Philadelphia "... is one of the few places outside of France to support a flourishing French culture" although "it remains largely unknown to tourists and locals alike. "

La désignation a été officialisée en 1999. Selon City Paper , le quartier français de Philadelphie "... est l'un des rares endroits hors de France à soutenir une culture française florissante " même si "il reste largement méconnu des touristes et des autochtones".

"Street photography, a genre of photography that records everyday life in a public place. The very publicness of the setting enables the photographer to take candid pictures of strangers, often without their knowledge."
Really nice! I like the heavy shadow on the right!
Thanks for sharing that which is largely unknown by the public:) Jesh
Looks like the real thing!
Wonder what that guy is pondering?
Well captured James Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend/
Fine picture, makes us wonder what is up.
Interesting. I would have thought it was a vintage picture from France.
If (or when!) I come to Philly one day, this place will be the first on my to-do list!!
I like the moment you captured, right when the guy seems to be thinking "where do I go now?..."
To teach me too swim, my grand-father threwme into the sea from his boat; nothing else to do than swim to survive!
Quelle photo équilibrée et agréable à regarder.
merci pour cet instant photo dans le quartier français de cette grande ville américaine !
It does indeed look quite parisian.
That is funny they have a French Quarter. It looks real Parisian.
