#TBT Olde City AutoPark
When you think Old City, a lot of things come to mind. If you’re a tourist, you might think of all the historic sites such as Independence Hall or the Liberty Bell. If you’re an art fan, you might flock to Old City for First Friday, a monthly event which showcases one-of-a-kind art from local artists.
In other words — Old City has something for everyone. Its lively and vibrant culture adds to its reputation of being America’s most historic square mile.
But here lies the question, “Where should I park in Old City?” Well, our aptly named Old City AutoPark offers convenient parking for all tourists, commuters and art fans. Located at 2nd and Sansom Streets, you’re only a few blocks away from taking in Old City’s history and robust art scene.
Speaking of art: for this month’s #TBT, we found this artist’s 1977 sketch of our Old City AutoPark. Though construction was complete in the 1980’s, this sketch offered a near perfect glimpse of what to expect.
Once again, we’d like to thank Margery Sly, Director of the Special Collections Research Center at Temple University, for allowing us to share this piece of PPA history.
