STREETSMART Philadelphia includes a stunning dimensional detail of Penn's Landing, Independence Historical National Park, Center City, and University City. Edition also includes a map of Metro Philadelphia and SEPTA Regional Transit. You can feel the history of the city which served as the capital during George Washington's presidency. But there is much more to this town which has become a magnet for young New Yorkers and immigrants who seek a more livable and affordable place to live.

STREETSMART Philadelphia will guide you with confidence and ease whether you trying to go from 30th Street Station -- the nation's second busiest - to University City across the river or to Center City, Society Hill, Reading Market or Independence National Mall. All attractions are clearly marked.



Simplicity reigns supreme in information design to make complex cities clear and understandable. Our typography creates character and reveals the true bones of the city. VanDam uses a letter grid to identify locations on maps - no confusing and cluttering K-28 or V-34s - its just the city from A-Z. Our covers map the icons of each city and turn them into collectible graphic art. Each sleek and laminated city map package opens to 24" x 9" and then easily folds down to 4" x 9" to snuggly fit into a shirt pocket or purse. Gain instant Philly StreetSmarts and a sexy souvenir to boot!
