Hey SEPTA Rider! I hope you’re ready for a new location because I have a good one for you this week. For this location, we’re headed over to Northern Liberties!
Northern Liberties is a formal industrial area that was revitalized by artists in the 1990s. Northern Liberties can now be considered a “hipster” spot filled with galleries, breweries, trendy boutiques, and popular restaurants. Northern Liberties is also home to a shopping, dining, and apartment complex called the Piazza. The Piazza houses many local shops including one of our very own Perks Partners, Creep Records.
Creep Records is a brick-and-mortar record store that sells records, compact discs, art, and more! If you are a SEPTA Key cardholder, then you can save 10% at Creep Records on any purchase.
Northern Liberties will also be hosting Restaurant Week from April 1st – 10th. Visitors’ can dine at their favorite restaurants as they are offering multi-course prix fixe lunches and dinners for $15-$35.
As the weather begins to break, I wanted to make my way over to No Libs and check out our Perks Partner over at the Piazza.
For this adventure, the mode of transportation was the El aka the Market Frankford Line. I headed down to 13th Street Station and waited to head Eastbound towards Girard Station. I tapped on at the turnstile then boarded the train when it arrived.
When I got to Girard Station, I exited the platform then headed down the steps to the street. The Piazza was only a 5-minute walk away, and I was able to find Creep Records in no time. When I walked into the store, I was greeted by the tunes of Queen. The place was decorated with neon lights, arcade games, and music tour posters. The store gave a classic old-school feel that could make anyone feel nostalgic.
After taking a few pictures of the store I decided to head back to Girard Station. On the way back, I admired all the street art Northern Liberties had to offer.
The cost to ride the MFL, no matter the starting point, is $2.00 when utilizing Travel Wallet on your SEPTA Key card. The cost when using cash is $2.50 and must be exact change if paying the cashier or you can purchase a quick trip from a SEPTA Key fare kiosk. And remember, facemasks are required on all SEPTA modes.
If you’re looking for a way to head to North 2nd Street for global restaurants, craft beer halls, fun dance clubs, and unique shops then look no further than SEPTA as the #waytogo.
