Old City by J. Fusco for Visit Philadelphia.
Believe it or not, lots of new retail outlets and restaurants opened in Center City in 2020 and the first half of 2021. And more eateries and shops are coming soon. If you haven't venture into Center City since the pandemic began, you may be in for a wonderful surprise. The streets are lined with chalets for shaded outdoor dining and the sidewalks are once again bustling with activity. List courtesy of Center City District.
Opened in 2020
In 2020, several shops opened in the Fashion District and throughout Market East. Rittenhouse Square, Midtown Village and other neighborhoods also experienced retail and restaurant growth.
