It has been so long since I've done a Photo Friday. So welcome back! I have been taking photos of Philly to share with you but I never get to it. Today is the day!
This picture was taken from Lowe's parking lot looking across the street.
New Jersey isn't the only place with strip malls. Northeast Philadelphia (where I live) is full of them. This is Aramingo Avenue which is the main drag where I live. Every block is full of stores. You can get just about anything here. Target, WalMart, Lowe's, Home Depot, K-Mart, Dollar Tree, Radio Shack, car repair, you name it, it's there.
And then there's the food: Wawa, 7-11, McDonalds, Wendy's, Checkers, Chick-Fil-A, IHOP, Super China Buffet, East Coast Wings and Grill, Wings to Go, Andy's Deli, Boston Market, Little Caesar's, Dominos, Papa Johns, Taco Bell, Sonic. And the list goes on.
And there's always something new being built or a store moves out and a new one moves in. The rumor is that a Marshalls is coming where the old fitness center was. I hope that is true because I am looking forward to that.
Lots of clothing stores too: Rainbow, Dots, Modells, Foreman Mills, etc.
All in all it's a great place to live. My friend Debbie can tell you. She lives a couple of blocks off of the avenue and doesn't have a car. She doesn't need one because everything is in walking distance. I live about a mile away and it takes me minutes to get to anything I want.
Hope you have a place like this nearby too.
