Tour the northern end of the Grant Street area on this free guided walking tour with PHLF, from Sixth Avenue to Liberty and back to the U.S. Steel Plaza (across from the Omni William Penn Hotel). You’ll see corporate skyscrapers––originally designed for Gulf Oil, Koppers, and U. S. Steel––plus two new hotels in historic buildings; a private clubhouse; a sensational railroad headquarters building that now houses apartments, offices, and Amtrak; the massive Federal Courthouse; and the enduring First Lutheran Church, serving downtown since 1888.
