Philadelphia's Lost Waterfront
Water Street began as an uneven footpath, then turned into a muddy cartway, and finally became a paved lane. The lane was initially called “King” Street, supposedly because goods crossing over it one way or the other had to pay a duty to the king of England. Sadly, much of Water Street was removed for the construction of Interstate 95.
Also, look up at the top of the buildings on this street and you will catch a closer glimpse of the Penny Pot Tavern replica, which you saw earlier on this tour.
