I find Addison Street one of the most beloved and often-under cherished streets in Philadelphia. Located in Rittenhouse Square, this one way, no parking on the street locale is known for its quiet tree-lined historic row homes. It is adorned with a festive display of string lights 24/7 365 days a year, where you can enjoy the magic of the holidays any time of year.
There are many old horse tethering rings, from days of horse-drawn carriages when the road was a cobbled street.. Each home is immaculately decorated for the holidays. However, the one thing that stands out on Addison street, is it is always Christmas! The tree-lined street is usually adorned with Christmas lights 24/7 (no matter the time nor time of year).
Don’t be surprised if you catch neighbors coming out to say, “hi.” It is one of my most beloved places to capture small families around the Christmas Season!
However, any time of year… it is a beautiful place to stroll down. Wandering through the neighboring areas of Delancey and many of the nooks and crannies around Pine Street. Rittenhouse square is one of my favorite neighborhoods to explore.
